Orange Russian, Doukhobors

About Orange Russian, Doukhobors

Jennifer Hutson of Ontario, Canada collected the seed for this tomato. She said, “This was not ‘The Orange Russian’ but another one grown by the Doukhobors in Saskatchewan, Canada.” According to Wikipedia, The Doukhobors (Russian: Духоборы, Dukhobory) are a Christian group of Russian origin that dates back to the 17th century. The Doukhobors were one of the sects – later defined as a religious philosophy, ethnic group, social movement, or simply a “way of life” – known generically as Spiritual Christianity. The majority of Doukhobors moved from the Russian Empire to Canada in the 19th century and settled in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia.
Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces high yields of 3-6 oz., yellow, oblate tomatoes with green shoulders. Some radial cracking. Very good mild acidic taste. Juicy.
