A Russian heirloom tomato. Seeds sent to Gary Ibsen of TomatoFest by Rusian Doochov from Ukraine, a 4th generation farmer of tomatoes. He’s known for having what is probably the largest private collection of rare plants and vegetables in Ukraine. This tomato is named after his father, Nicholas. Big, leafy, indeterminate plant produces big crops of 10-14 oz., red, round fruits that have well balanced sweet flavors with a big clean acidic finish. A good all-purpose tomato especially good as a canning tomato.
