Tomato variety from Natalia Khilenko’s seed collection. Seeds were sent to Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds in 2014 by Aleksey Kulik, Ukraine, who received them from Natalia Khilenko of Armavir, Russia. Mrs. Khilenko and her family have been growing many native Russian heirlooms for many years, and she shared seeds from her seed collection with Aleksey Kulik, a Ukrainian seed vendor. Introduced commercially by Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds in 2016. Compact determinate, regular leaf plants produce 2-4 oz., small, round and oblate, bright-red fruits with some ribbing on shoulders. Very good flavor. This is a special variety used for marinating in Russia. Fruits are meaty and juicy, but hold their shape very well for canning whole.
