Details

An heirloom from Irkutsk, Siberia and is regarded as a "true Siberian tomato" that does very well in cooler climates. The 3-5-oz., 3" tomatoes are round and very uniform; the color is a wonderful deep blackish-chocolate brown. The unusual brown shoulders become orange-red at the blossom end. The flavor is as deep, sweet and rich as the color. A unique salad tomato; the plants produce a large crop and early; a good tomato for fine markets. Until only recently this was considered a rare variety in the United States.
