Tomato, Iraqi Heart (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. Pink Paste. 80 days. Indet.

Pink, 8-10 oz fruit are shaped like an oxheart or Amish paste. Very meaty with a rich flavor. Great for cooking and slicing. Yields heavy fairly late in the season and likes the heat. Possibly brought to England by a military officer after World War II. Received as Irakische Herzformige from Gerhard Bohl, a seed collector in Germany.

Geographical Origin

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.
