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.
