Tomato, Astrakhanskie (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. 70-75 days. Indet.

Big, red beefsteak variety from the Astrakhan region of Russia. Always a big hit in our tomato patch. The appearance alone is all we could want in a beefsteak, and with flavor to match, Astrakhanskie is one of our go-to varieties when harvesting for the kitchen. What really gets us is the earliness and high yields. Large, red fruit have a flattened oblate shape with some attractive ribbing and 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.

Geographical Origin

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    These produced very well for us in 2020. Delicious and fairly productive. Saved seeds for the first time and hope to grow them again in 2021.
