About Sylvan Gaume

Russian origin. Named after a 80-year old man in Canada who shared the seeds and indicated that this variety came from Russia. Its original Russian name is not known. First offered in the Seed Savers 1995 Yearbook by Anne Carritt of Sidney, Manitoba, Canada, who received seeds from a SSE member from Alberta. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces 6-12 oz., large, red, meaty, irregularly-shaped fruits, most with ribbed shoulders. Note: all the fruits are not heart-shaped, but they are still hearts, judging by the small size of the seed cavities and small number of seeds in each fruit. Very good, well-balanced flavors.
