Details

Luc Fichot, from Belgium, first offered this tomato in the Seed Savers 2005 Yearbook. He received the seeds from a Ukrainian friend. It is common for tomato varieties in the former USSR to be called 'American', 'Chinese', etc., and it may or may not reflect the true origin of the seeds. The name means 'American Sweet' in Russian. These medium-sized pink tomatoes are very, very sweet, like candy!
