Orange Russian 117 (Dawson’s Russian Oxheart)

About Orange Russian 117 (Dawson’s Russian Oxheart)

Orange Russian, 117 AKA Dawson’s Russian Oxheart. Bred by Jeff Dawson in the mid-90s from a cross between Russian 117 and Georgia Streak. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce beautiful 10-18 oz., heart-shaped, yellow-orange with pink blush tomatoes. Very meaty flesh with a red center. The terrific flavor is well-balanced, complex, and well-balanced. Great for sauces, salads and sandwiches.
