Originated in Moldova. The seed was collected in 1986 from a Farmer’s market in Kishinev, Moldova, hence the name. First offered in the Seed Savers 2006 Yearbook by Norbert R. Pikovsky, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, who obtained the seed from the USDA. Introduced commercially by Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds in 2016. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces 2-3 oz., elongated, firm, red plums. Perfect for canning or pickling. Very good sweet flavor.
