Origin from Russian seedswoman Marina Danilenko. Sprawling indeterminate plant produces an abundant long and steady crop of 2″, elongated, oval, plum-shaped fruits that are colored a beautiful deep-mahogany with dusky-green shoulders and garnet red flesh. Fruit resembles a small paste tomato but with thinner walls. Unique, sweet, tangy, rich, complex flavors. Great for snacking off the vine, sliced and scattered into a salad (perhaps with red and yellow cherry tomatoes), or making a rich, dark-colored pasta sauce. Presented in a bowl they appear like exotic jewels. YUM!
