(75 day) Russian heirloom variety developed during the Soviet era and introduced into the U.S. in 2000. Named for the Gypsies who live in Russia. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces heavy yields of small, 6 oz., mahogany to deep brown-pur- ple, round tomatoes with green shoulders. Outstanding flavors with a good balance between sweet and acidic; almost smoky. One of the nicest dark varieties out there.
Start indoors about 1/4” deep 5-6 weeks before the last frost. Transplant well after danger of frost and ideally when night temps don’t go lower than 50F. Sow plants 24-36” apart. Plant in full sun and will need to stake or trellis plants. Fertilize with fish emulsion, compost, manure or a soluble, complete fertilizer.
