Details

This Russian commercial variety was introduced in the early 2000s. Dobrynya Nikitich is one of the three famous 'bogatyrs' (Alesha Popovich, Ilya Muromets, and Dobrynya Nikitich) in Russian folklore. There are three Russian tomatoes named after each 'bogatyr', and this is one of them. These pink heart-shaped tomatoes remind us of vintage Christmas ornaments. Excellent slicers!
