Purple Russian Tomato
A plum-shaped purple-red tomato, originating from Irma Henkel in Ukraine.
Skin is a combination of purple, red and brown. Slice a tomato open and you will see a reddish brown flesh. Unlike a paste tomato, this variety is juicy and delicious! Flavour is sweet and meaty, great for eating raw, sliced into salads, salsa, tomato sauce and more!
A very versatile tomato. Fruit will grow into a substantial size of 3 to 4 inches long and 2 to 2.5 inches wide.
Start tomato seeds indoors a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks before the final frost date. Please refer to my Seed Starting Calculator for specific planting dates for your planting area.
Tomatoes grow best in full sun and require consistent moisture, in order to avoid blossom end rot.
Transplant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed. Space your plants at least 2 to 3 feet apart, depending on how well you stake them. Stay on top of removing sucker stems.
Plants are indeterminate and require proper staking in order to support tall vines. Remove suckers to encourage growth of the main central stem.
Days to Maturity: 70 to 80
Packet: 20 seeds
