This is a rare offering from the famed Russian tomato breeder Fedor Tarasenko. This is a great tomato with super flavor. Tarasenko 2 has good keeping qualities and will hold on the counter longer than most open pollinated garden varieties. This was one of my favorites. As with so many things I grew this year, the main crop did not make it because I was sick and could not maintain the fields. If you want this one, and you should, then please order early.
