Russian variety, first taken to Oregon by Kate Gessert from Moscow, author of ‘The Beautiful Food Garden,’ who was a leader of horticultural tours of the Soviet Union. It then found its way to the Heritage Seed Library in the UK and is now back in the U.S.. Vigorous, determinate, regular leaf plant produces deep red, 2.5″, slightly elongated round fruits with exceptional sweet flavor, juicy and thick walled. Detaches from plant without calyx and is extremely prolific even in cool conditions. Good for processing and for fresh use.
