Sibirskiy Velikan Rozovyi
Year: 2014, 2018
Seed Source: Original seed purchased from Tatiana's TomatoBase (2012).
2018 Did not do as well for me this year, I suspect it was the high day temperatures with no cooling off at night. Still a favourite, will still grow again, and still a fantastic variety. I got about 8 lb/plant. 2014 Really lovely sweet, tangy flavour. Nice rich flesh, very meaty but with good amount of juice as well. Plants grow extremely well (and wild), requires good staking. Excellent quality large fruit with good production. One of my favourites of all time. 14lb per plant.
