A Russian heirloom variety obtained by Seedfest from the city of Smolensk in the Russian Federation in 1998. Named after Count Alexeis Orlov, a famous Russian horticulturist and Russian War hero of the 18th century. Tall, indeterminate, potato-leaf, tomato plants produce moderate to very good yields of very beautiful 3-inch, 14-20 ounce, yellow-gold, slightly-flattened, lightly-fluted, beefsteak tomatoes that have delicious lightly-sweet flavors that are well balanced with just the right amount of acidity to add the wonderful zest you want for old-fashioned tomato splendor. It’s meaty and flavorful flesh make this a good slicer for tomato salads, sandwiches and tomato salsas. RARE tomato seeds.
