organic tomato seedsOrganic Cosmonaut Volkov Red Tomato Seeds (78 days)

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Semi-determinate vines with regular leaves.

Cosmonaut Volkov hails from the Ukrane and is named after a very famous Russian cosmonaut who died in service of his country.  This is a cherished beefsteak type tomato known in Russia for its huge 1-2 pound fruits. 

Cosmonaut Volkov has round, slightly flattened fruits with a rich, full and complex flavor.  Excellent acid-sweet balance that so many love.  Perfect for BLTs or salads.

California Grown Heirloom Seed
Yet, I say this again but these Russian heirloom tomatoes just do so well for us here.  Cosmonaut Volkov is later that Katja.  So if you are looking for an early beefsteak then Katja may be a better choice.  Other wise this is an excellent beefsteak for our cool foggy nights.  I say this because you can have a real challenge sometimes with something like Hillbilly or Brandywine here.  Yes, we still get decent tomato production, but nothing like these Russian Heirloom tomatoes.  They really produce!

Very Limited Supply This Year.   Once we are sold out that is it for the season!

Planting Tips for Heirloom Tomatoes:

Most gardeners want to get the most out of these delicious heirloom tomatoes and therefore give them a head start on the growing season.  Start these vegetable seeds indoors in sterile potting mix being sure to keep the temperature above 70 degrees.  Some people prefer to use a grow pad but the top of the fridge has been known to be quite effective as well. 

Once the first true leaves appear on your tomato seedlings, transplant into 4" pots until you have completely hardened them off in the garden.  Hardening is a process of exposing the plants more and more to outside temperature until they are hardy enough to tollerat a complete outdoor move.  Generally speaking, by early summer heirloom tomatoes should be transplated into the garden.

Most heirloom varieties are quite productive and will greatly benefit from sturdy supports.  It may also be advisable to add blood and bone to the worked soil to help ensure healthy productive heirloom tomatoes.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Tomato Seeds:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
