Only an heirloom tomato that came from the climate of Siberia could tolerate the fickle and sometimes cool temperatures that exasperate some gardeners in spring! 'Red Siberian' tolerates regular summer temperatures and withstands cool temperatures while still producing abundant fruit with rich, classic tomato flavor. Stout, short plants (to 3-feet) are great for containers.

Siberian tomato is my go-to variety each summer. It grows well in the high tunnel and produces until the temperature drops below freezing outside. The fruits are bright red and tasty, making great salsa. I like to freeze them for use in the winter in stews and food processor salsa.

I grew these summer 2019 in zone 6 (Northeast Ohio). The seeds germinated well, the tomatoes were around 1 pound each. Great flavor for fresh eating...I also canned some. They were very meaty, not overly juicy and not very seedy. I liked them so much, I ordered a new pack of seeds for this coming summer. I've been trying different varieties to increase my tomato yields. Since this is a bit larger tomato it takes longer for it to ripen. I grew one in a 17 gallon container and it did as well as the ones in the ground. These seemed to be more disease resistant than most of the others I grew last year.. I've had great experiences with this seed company.. While I've been gradually trying to grow different veggies, I've been pleased with my success using their seeds.
