‘Shapka Monomakha’ is a Russian commercial variety, created by Dederko Vladimir Nikolayevich, Postnikova Tatyana Nikolayevna, Ugarova Svetlana Vktorovna in 2003. It was included in the Russian State Register in 2007. The name can be translated as ‘Monomakh’s Cap,’ or “The Crown of Monomakh,” and it refers to the crown of all Russian Tsars from Dmitri Donskoi to Peter the Great. Some sources translate the name as ‘Monomakh’s Hat,’ which is technically correct but does not refer to the historical headgear. Listed at SSE Yearbook as ‘Monomakh’s Hat’.
Indeterminate, regular leaf plants with wispy foliage produce 6-12 oz., pink, heart-shaped fruits, some with a pointed tip and some blunt hearts. Very meaty with sweet, delicious flavors. Midseason, about 80 days to maturity.
