An excellent variety from Russia. Seeds were given to Bill McDorman of Seeds Trust when in Irkutsk, Siberia in 1989, by his dear Siberian friend Sasha who claimed this variety that he grew in his garden in the Altai Shan mountain range was the “best tomato in all of Siberia.” Sasha’s Altai was selected by Organic Garden Magazine as one of the 10 best early producing tomatoes in the world. Sasha’s Altai is a hearty tomato plant that produces very good yields of 4-6 oz., thinned-skinned, bright-red, slightly flattened, round tomatoes with an award-winning complex flavor. Fruit sets well in cooler coastal climates and high altitudes. Excellent for canning, salads and making tomato juice.
