Cosmonaut Volkov Tomato Seedlings
Certified Organic Seed
Round, red tomato with a tangy flavor.
This is an excellent Northeast variety with a sweet/tangy flavor. It has heavy yields of big fruit of around 4-5 inches in diameter--great for fresh eating!
Early enough for a quick Russian summer and with a taste that's positively celestial, Cosmonaut Volkov Tomatoes will land a regular spot in your garden. The variety is of Ukrainian origin, but was selected by Russian space engineer turned avid gardener Mikhailovich Maslov. He thought it one of the best of his garden and named it after his comrade Vladislav Volkov, a Russian astronaut who perished while returning from the first visit to the Earth's first space station. This exceptional variety will keep the spirit of adventure alive in your garden.
