Saraev I-2

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 very early yields of 2-5 oz., red, small to medium-sized, round fruit with juicy flesh and very good tomatoey flavors with an acidic finish. A good variety for container gardening.
