‘Bliznetsy’ is a Russian commercial variety (translated in English as ‘Gemini’). It was introduced in 2009 by Russian CV ‘Sibirskiy Sad’ as part of their ‘Tomato Horoscope’ collection. Released by a number of Russian commercial seed vendors in the late 2000s, including ‘Sibirskiy Sad’. This tomato is out of a series of Russian-bred tomatoes that are named after the Horoscope signs. First introduced commercially in North America by ‘Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds’ in 2010. Determinate, regular leaf plant produces large, rose-pink, heart-shaped tomatoes. Midseason, about 80 days to maturity.
*According to SSE Yearbook, there is also another, red-fruited tomato called ‘Gemini’. It is red, and an entirely different variety not related to ‘Bliznetsy’.
