Tomato, Astrakhanskie (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. 70-75 days. Indet.
Big red beefsteak variety from the Astrakhan region of Russia. A big hit in our tomato patch as they are big & beautiful. What really surprised us was the yield & earliness. Large red fruits have a flattened oblate shape with some attractive ribbing & can reach up to 1 lb. Best flavor when slightly under ripe. Tall floppy vines are productive for an heirloom. We received it originally from Tatiana Kouchnareva, the creator of the wonderful website Tatiana’s TOMATObase. She received this variety from Andrey Baranovski of Minsk, Belarus.
