Everything I read about this tomato said it would give me something in the one pound range. That was not the case for me and my seeds came directly from the Russian source. What I did get is a pretty early decent tasting black tomato on a small regular leaf plant. Most of mine were in the 6-8 ounce range and never any bigger. As I said, we have seed grown from original Russian seed and can recommend this tomato as a dependable early season black/purple.
