I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

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!
