Virden Oxheart Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) Another beautiful tomato from the Cricket Corner collection near Kennedy Saskatchewan. This oxheart strain is similar to our Katie;'s Oxheart with a few notable differences. Virden fruits are heart-shaped but slightly larger, ranging from 2.5-4" in diameter. Also, orange-red fruits are thicker walled with more prominent shoulder striping maturing about 7 days earlier than Katie's. A fabulous indeterminate and prolific vine that should be included in your tomato rotation. We are offering this rare variety for the first time exclusively at Revival Seeds! Limited Quantities for 2022!
