‘Tarasenko 6’ is an old Ukrainian variety, developed by the late Ukrainian amateur tomato breeder Feodosiy Tarasenko of Voronezh, Shostka district, Sumy region. ‘Although the original Russian name translates as ‘Hybrid Tarasenko 6’, this is an open pollinated variety. Fedor Tarasenko called his varieties ‘hybrid’ simply because he made crosses using two parents. These crosses were F1 hybrids, but he stabilized them before sharing seeds with other gardeners’*. This variety was first offered in the Seed Savers 2006 Yearbook by Andrey Baranovski of Minsk, Belarus. Indeterminate plants with regular leaf foliage. It produces a good yield of red, round, and oblate medium to large-sized fruit (6-15 oz.) with a very good, sweet tomato taste. Perfect for fresh eating. Midseason, about 75 days to maturity.
