Russian Red Tomato

70 - 75 days, indeterminate.
Plants are tree-type with rugose leaves and are very hardy reaching a height of 5 feet by season end. Fruits are red, quite juicy and have a great flavor. Fruit size is 2-5 ounces. Hard for me to resist snacking on these while working in the field. Sent to me by Glenn Parker of New Zealand in 2003, he gave the following information: "Bred at the Levin Agricultural Research Centre (New Zealand) in 1943 and released in 1949. Commercially it was not popular as the fruit was "too small". It became the most popular New Zealand home garden variety."
