  1. Thanks for the link, Anne. Interesting history of the variety, too. The greengrocer says they have been available in Italy for about 5 years.

    I KNOW OF THESE LOVELY TOMATOES, I ATE THEM IN ITALY LAST MONTH AND I WANT TO GROW THEM. WILL BE IN THE OXFORDSHIRE AREA IN JUNE ANY SUGGESTIONS WHERE I CAN BUY THE SEEDS? THEY ARE SO DELICIUS AND MEATY NOT FULL OF SEEDS AS OTHER VARIETIES.

  3. I was given a small plant of this Cuor di Bue, grown by our local garden club. It has grown into a gorgeous plant with the MOST delicious heart shaped tomatoes (about 3 inches long)! I picked one too early before it was a deep red & the flavor was still fabulous. We live in the Salt Lake area of Utah, USA, which is hot & dry but I keep the plant watered well. It's a treat to have in a home garden. I've seen seeds of it listed in catalogs.

  4. Demetra and Susan Blossom..thank you for calling in and leaving a comment, I love these tomatoes.

    Susan it must be very difficult growing things in Utah as it is so dry, great though that you Toms have grown, hope they are tasty!
