Tomato, Maria Nagy Heart (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 80 days. Indet.
A Transylvanian tomato with exceptionally rich and sweet flavor. Late but productive. Large, meaty, pear shaped fruit are good for eating raw or for sauce, and taste incredible when roasted with basil, salt and olive oil. Received from seed steward Maria Nagy in Turda, Romania, during our Seed Ambassadors trip. She gestured that the fruit is the size of her two fists together – or maybe she was waving her two fists in the air to show us that this tomato is a champion? Both interpretations would be accurate. A heritage type becoming rare even in its historical home. Aka, Maria Nagy Pear.
