Tomato, Beefsteak - Cosmonaut Volkov

Pick a style to add to your cart



3416-LG   Solanum lycopersicum

(Semi-determinate. 68 days.)

The first choice from our 2009 trials for taste and early ripening! An old Ukrainian tomato, renamed in 1971 for the Russian cosmonaut who died on a mission in out-er space. He must have been quite the guy, as this is quite the tomato. Large, slightly flattened, red, beefsteak-type fruits with yellow shoulders. Rich flavour that excelled in our less-than-perfect 2009 growing season.

30-60 seeds/0.2g

Grown by Michelle Smith of North Wind Farm in Cape Breton.

Volkov success!

I grew 7 varieties of tomatoes this year and the tastiest by far are these.
I will be growing them again, for sure.
Thanks Hope Seeds!

With the wet awful weather we had this year, it still performed great. Very tasty. Highly recommended!!

Hi, just wanted to comment on the Cherokee Purple which I love. It has been an absolute flop this year for me so far. I've planted 3 times from seed and only have 2 plants that are doing anything and are way behind the Quebec 5 that are doing great this year. Is it the weather? Is anyone else having trouble with tomatoes?

This is the first year I have grown this variety and I have to say that in spite of an early blight they are some of the biggest and tastiest tomatoes I've ever had. Definitely a winner in our household this year.
