Originally grown in southern Russia between the Caspian and Black Seas. Thought by some to be “Queen of the Pinks,” these prolific,1-2 pound, globe-shaped, pleated, pink-red beefsteak tomatoes that rival Brandywine in popularity and flavor. (Some find the taste even better than Brandywine.) One of the best known and best-tasting Russian tomatoes. This tomato is perfect for cooler climates. A winning choice for a market tomato, sandwich, sauce or salad tomato.
