Alaska (Alyaska) is a Russian comercial variety bred and offered by CV ‘Gavrish’ in 2001.* These organic tomato seeds produce short to medium-sized, bushy plants. This is an early-producing tomato plant (about 65 days from transplant) that yields lots of large, round, brilliant red, ‘salad-type’ cherry tomatoes with very good flavor. This is a favorite tomato variety for cooler growing climates.
* There are two different tomatoes under the name ‘Alaska’. The one described above is Russian origin, and the second one is described at ‘Vent Marin’ as an Canadian origin, an indeterminate selection from ‘Farthest North’ variety, with larger fruit, made by Edward Lowden of Ancaster, Ontario.
