According to several sources, this is one of the most loved tomatoes in Russia. I first trialed this tomato a few years ago but for some reason have never grown enough to offer seeds. This is a very good multi-purpose tomato that is good for both fresh eating and for canning and cooking. It has a distinctive blocky look that sets it apart from many other tomatoes I have grown. I think you will see why it is so loved once you give it a try. Seed is very limited.
