Details

Also known as Gribnoe Lukoshko, introduced from Russia. One of the most beautiful and attractive tomatoes we have ever grown. It's called Mushroom Basket because the inverted tomato looks like the cap of a mushroom. It is very ribbed and pleated, but otherwise very uniform, large and perfect looking, being a vibrant watermelon-pink color with cream colored speckles that really make the fruit sparkle and glisten. Its flavor is sweet and mild; flesh is firm and the seeds are very few. The tomatoes grow to 8-16 oz. and are perfect for slicing.
