‘Mikado Rozovyy’ is a Russian commercial variety. According to ‘Tatiana’s TOMATObase’ this variety ‘may be related to the famous Mikado tomato, as Mikado was available in Czech seed bank in the 40s (it was used as a parent when Jaroslav Homola bred his famous Stupice tomatoes), and from there Mikado seeds likely came to the former USSR. But so far we were not able to obtain a definitive proof of this theory’.*
Large (9-18oz./250-500g), pink beefsteak type fruits are very juicy and have excellent smooth balanced flavor. Indeterminate, potato leaf plants have a very good disease resistance and are very prolific. Late, about 85 days to maturity.
