Purple Russian AKA Ukrainian Purple. A Russian heirloom tomato from Irma Henkel in the Ukraine. Indeterminate, regular leafed plant with wispy foliage, produces huge amounts of purple-red, 5-7 oz., 3-4″ long, oblong, (plum-shaped to egg-shaped) tomatoes with a blemish-free skin excellent sweet flavor. Purple Russian has been a staple for my market variety selection because it holds up well, and it’s wonderful flavor. Chefs enjoy this selection because of it’s color and delicious flavors. A perfect tomato for enjoying in salads, for making fabulous tomato sauce or salsa, or canning.
