Saraev Druzhnyi

A cold-tolerant selection by a Russian tomato breeder P.Y. Saraev, who specialized in breeding tomatoes that can withstand freezing temperatures. Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds received 15 year-old seeds from Valery Popenko of Semei, Kazakhstan in 2014. The seeds had very good germination, and the 2015 grow out was successful. Compact determinate, regular leaf plants produce an early and plentiful crop of 4-6 oz. red, medium-sized, round, oblate, fruit with smooth shoulders and juicy flesh with very good full tomato flavors. A good choice for planting in containers. A very good variety for cooler climates.
