Description
Yellow Oxheart Certified Naturally Grown Seed

90 days, indeterminate — Typical of heart-shaped varieties, the plants of 'Yellow Oxheart' tend to be sprawling if not tied up and have wispy leaves. As its name implies, 'Yellow Oxheart' fruits are oxheart-shaped and a beautiful golden-yellow in color. Their size is rather variable, ranging from eight ounces to well over one pound each. 

As claimed by the Livingston Seed Company, they were the originator of oxheart tomatoes in the commercial seed industry. The pink-fruited 'Livingston's Oxheart' tomato was commercially introduced in 1926 and this yellow variety was released in 1929. Both are prominently featured on the back cover of their 1933 Seed Annual (see image above).

Our original seed was sent to us in 2004 by a seed saver in Pennsylvania named Jeptha Yoder (PA YO J). Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Informational References:
  1. "Tomato Varieties," by Gordon Morrison, Michigan State College A.E.S., Special Bulletin 290, April 1938.
  2. "Livingston's Seed Annual," The Livingston Seed Company, 1929.
  3. "Livingston's 1933 Seed Annual," The Livingston Seed Company, 1933.

Although the name of this variety contains a modern company's name, the seed we are offering is in no way sourced from, "owned by" or connected with that company. The name is simply the historically accurate, common name for the variety giving credit to the seedsman that originally released it.
