Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Lescana Heart - ripe fruit. 2013-08-18.


Indet. plants with regular wispy foliage produce huge irregularly shaped red fruits, some are hearts, and some are more round. It may develop some yellow shoulders if fruits are exposed to direct sunlight, so I would not recommend to prune plants and leave some good amount of foliage to protect fruits. Fruits are 10-16 oz, meaty but also very juicy, with delicious balanced taste that gets sweeter later in the season. Quite early compared to other large-fruited tomato varieties.
