An old Russian heirloom from Siberia. Named for the Aurora Borealis. Compact, bushy, determinate plants produce impressively heavy crops of 3-6 oz., red, round, blemish-free, oblate tomatoes with acidic but delicious tomato flavors. Produces well in cooler climates, coastal climates or high altitudes, in the field, in the greenhouse or containers. No cracking. An excellent choice for a heavy producing early tomato for market. A great canning tomato!
