Zheltyi Gigant

Russian commercial variety. The name means ‘Yellow Giant’ in Russian. First introduced in the Seed Savers 2009 Yearbook by Andrey Baranovski of Minsk, Belarus. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce high yield of 2-6 oz., round, medium-sized, orange fruit. (Not a giant as the name implies.) Very good sweet flavors.
