Big red tomatoes that were basically problem free. Outstanding growth habit on large abundantly producing plants. Orenburg Giant will give you a LOT of tomatoes. The taste is quite good and I would say more on the acidic side than sweet. If you grow something like Better Boy, you might want to give this one a try for a great tasting open pollinated tomato. We got our original seed stock from Germany but this is a Russian variety. Most of our tomatoes were in the 6-10 ounce range which is large, but “giant” seems like an exaggeration.
