Cosmonaut Volkov Tomato (Lycopersicon lycopersicum)
Cosmonaut Volkov Tomato (Lycopersicon lycopersicum): this is a special Ukrainian variety selected by Eng. Mikhailovich Maslov, passionate cultivator and cosmonaut, who named this tomato, which he preferred better than the ones in his own garden, after his friend Vladislav Volkov, a Russian astronaut who died whilst returning from his first mission to space.
This tomato does not fear cold, nor spring frosts. It has a big size, up to 700 gr, slightly flattened and ribbed, of an intense red and balanced flavor between sweet and sour. It produces big tomatoes even when the climate is severe.
