Tomato Tuesday

This weeks tomato spotlight is on "Russian Rose". This Russian heirloom tomato variety is aptly named as it bears tomatoes as pretty as a rose. A good producer of 12 oz., deliciously sweet pink tomatoes. Russian Rose is an indeterminate plant that matures in 78 days. They are meaty and flavorful. The plant I grew was very prolific and produced pretty large tomatoes. The one tomato weighed in at 1lb. This tomato made an excellent tomato sandwich!  I will definitely be growing this variety again.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Tomato Tuesday post. Come back next week to see which tomato variety I will be spotlighting from my garden. Happy gardening!


  1. What a pretty tomato! This year, I planted a russian tomato called black krim and it was a fun tomato but I thought the flavor was a bit mild for a homegrown tomato. Glad to have found your blog - I love tomatoes too!

    1. Hi Stacy! I am glad you found my blog and enjoy it. I am a newbie in the blog world. I love growing tomatoes. This year I grew around 60 plants. Russian Rose was one of my favorites.
