They measure 3 1/2 inches wide and 4 inches long and weigh in just under 1/2 pound each. Cuore di Bue is one of the tastiest saucing types with dense flesh and lustrous, orangey-red skin. Indeterminate. 85 days.
Plant 24-36″ apart in rows 3-4′ apart. Plants grow 4-6′ tall; provide a cage or trellis.
