Stephanie's Tomato 'Orange Russian 117' x 2
85 days from transplant.
From Amishland Seeds:
This was my favorite new bi-color (striped) tomato that I have ever grown, and believe me, I have grown lots as I adore the striations and marbling . This gorgeous tomato hails from the famous seed bank of the former Soviet Union. This is the first heart shaped (oxheart) tomato ever discovered with stripes. It is bi-colored both outside and inside. Absolutely breathtaking beauty. The taste is fruity, sweet and wonderful. I had very large fruits, mine averaged one pound, although it was described as being 8 oz or more. Very solid meat, scant gel and very few seeds. I am so very pleased to offer this beauty. It was somewhat late to ripen but it is really pumping out fruit now even in the cold, I guess that’s its Russian genes. This was the tomato more people commented on in my gardens than any other this season.
