79 days. (Indeterminate) [Possibly first available commercially in 1929 by Livingston Seed Co. though it dates from about 1915 as a family heirloom from Willis, Virginia. Reintroduced in 1989 by SESE.] 'Yellow Oxheart' rates in the top 5% of all yellow and golden tomatoes in our trials, and was the top performer in its class at every trial location in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The sweet fruits have a small core and a distinctive, rich, full, and exceptionally well balanced flavor. Use 'Yellow Oxheart' for salads, slicing, or processing, or eating off the vine. Low tolerance to disease and drought and poor seedling vigor are characteristic of this variety, but in most other respects it is a superb tomato. Foliage has thin, lacy, finely divided leaves. Fruits are bright yellow, meaty, oxheart-shaped and weigh close to a pound. Pkt.
