This weeks tomato spotlight is on "Orange Russian 117" tomato. Orange Russian tomato is a bicolored oxheart type tomato. It does not have wispy leaves like most oxheart tomato plants. This tomato is an orange, yellow and red bi-colored tomato that is meaty with few seeds. They can grow up to 2 pounds, but most are around 8oz. This tomato variety produces high yields and matures in 85 days. They can be used as a paste tomato or a slicing tomato. The flavor was amazing, I will definitely be growing this tomato again next year. It has a well balanced flavor. Orange Russian 117 is a cross between Russian 117 and Georgia Streak. When you cut them open they are like a piece of art work with splashes of red throughout. I highly recommend this tomato if you have not tried it yet.
