An old Belarusian variety, bred by Belarusian Research Institute of Veg. Gardening from a cross between Opolchenets and Gruntovyi Alpatieva in the late 1940s. Released in 1951. The name means ‘Victory’ in Belarusian. First offered in the Seed Savers 1994 Yearbook by Patrick DeLozier of Kansas City, Missouri, who got the seeds from Moscow Botanical Garden. Introduced commercially by Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds in 2016.
Determinate, regular leaf plants produce 3-5 oz., red, round, oblate fruits with smooth shoulders. Excellent flavor for such an early variety.
