Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic Cosmonaut Volkov Tomato
Organic 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!
