OH One of the best tomatoes for taste and size! With complex flavour and an unusual look sometimes referred to as ugly, a must have for tomato enthusiasts. The deep red and greenish skin and flesh make this tomato an excellent salad and slicing tomato, but can also be used for sauce. This tomato was brought out of Russia in 1996 by Marina Danilenko, a Russian seedswoman, who started the first private seed company in Moscow. The name suggests that it is a Russian tomato from the industrial city of Tula, but other sources suggest it originated in the Ukraine. Indeterminate.
