Vegetables: Tomato (Slicing), Cosmonaut Volkov - Solanum Lycopersicum
Always good and occasionally sublime (the best two tomatoes I’ve ever eaten were Cosmonauts from different gardens in different years), Cosmonaut delivers the true tomato taste. And it is early, usually ripening quantities of deep red slightly flattened 8–12 oz. Even in cold summers, it will produce dependably by mid-August. What makes Cosmonaut so special? In a word, the juice: sweet, rich, and full-bodied. Cosmonaut was named for the Russian explorer who fell through space. From Dnepropetrovsk in Ukraine, brought to America by the Seed Savers Exchange.
