From Russia With Love!
An American seedsman, Bill McDorman, who visited Russia in 1990 in search of more Siberian tomatoes, brought back 60 varieties and discovered a variety superior to all those tested. Siberian is sweet, flavor-packed and heavy bearing.
Plants fruit at low temperatures, produce extra early yields—FROST RESISTANT, TOO!
Siberian tomatoes really do come from Siberia, producing juicy, flavorful, smooth round fruit up to 1/2 lb. in size as early as 59 days from setting out plants. The plants produce delicious tomatoes ahead of other varieties because Siberians do not require high temperatures to set fruit like other tomatoes—just a few degrees above freezing is all the warmth they need.
Amazing results from Siberian tomatoes were first reported in Alberta (Canada) with a growing season of only 90–100 frost-free days. Plants came to America from Russian visitors who brought seeds as gifts. The plants became popular in Calgary gardens where they survived spring frost that killed other tomatoes.
These Siberian tomatoes are absolutely delicious for eating fresh, also excellent for sauces, juice and paste. A definite “must” for short-season areas of the north, a good wintertime tomato for the south and sensational extra-early tomatoes everywhere else.
