Tomato, Pusztakolosz (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. 80-85 days. Indet.
Large, 5-6″ wide, 16-24 oz beefsteak fruit. Plants are very vigorous and have very leafy, thick growth. Originally from Cluj, a city in Transylvania, Romania. Many Hungarians live in Romania and the name Kolosz is the Hungarian name for Cluj. Puszta means prairie. Good thing Andrew looked that up because Sarah thought the name just meant ‘pretty colossal,’ which would be a fitting name for this variety. We saw this type grown by subsistence farmers in Transylvania. Many old timers told us they wish they still grew it because modern hybrids have taken their place in markets, and they don’t taste as good.
