ANNA RUSSIAN TOMATO (Heirloom) - Discontinued

6

Russian HEIRLOOM Indeterminate. This variety was passed down from Russian immigrants to folks living in Oregon in the 1980's. Fast growing plants produce quantities of 8-16 oz, ox heart shaped fruit in clusters of 2 or 3 on wispy plants. The flavor is sweet, texture meaty and fruit is quite early. Color ranges from dark pink to red. 20 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

Harvest- When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

Amazing tomatoes!

I live in a colder climate with a short growing season (usually the last week of May to the first week of September). I have never been able to grow the bigger varieties of tomatoes, and have always stuck with Oregon Spring, Roma, and cherry varieties. I took a chance on the Anna Russians and holy cow! The plants were huge (definitely whispy), the fruit abundant, and the largest ripe tomato I picked mid-August was as large as my fist. The record, harvested green before our first frost, but ripened nicely indoors, was as large as my hand with outstretched fingers. Though they are not durable and need to be eaten or processed within a few days, they are very sweet and heavy. Will definitely be planting again.
