(AKA Ukrainian Purple) Original stock of this variety came from Irma Henkel in the Ukraine. Meaty, plum-shaped, 6 oz. fruits are 3 to 4" long. Tomatoes are sweet and flavorful making them a good choice for eating fresh, salsa and sauces. High yielding plants produce purplish-black, smooth skinned fruits that are crack resistant.

    Excellent tomato! Very sweet and great for eating alone or in salads. The color is a beautiful dusky mauve and I will be making sun dried tomatoes with it later in the Fall. I think it'll make a pretty combo if I dry the Purple Russians with the pale yellow Powers tomatoes and the pure white Ivory Sausage tomatoes I grew. I plan on having this little Ukrainian beauty in my garden every year now. Thanks for offering it!

    This was my absolute favorite tomato this 2011 season. Excellent flavor! Nice for a salad or just slicing. Will be planting twice as many in 2012.

    This tomato while it produced an avarage number of fruit with little cracking did not seem to ripen to the purple color that you was expected. The taste is excellent.
