The plants can get as tall as 10 feet, thought most reach only 6 feet. Plants have fern-like foliage and can
also be grown in pots, either indoors or outdoors, growing indoors greatly extends their growing season. Oxheart tomatoes need full sun, well-drained soil and lots of fertilizer.

After planting, apply .5 kilo per 10 square metres and work it well into the top 15cm of soil.
