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 Katja Tomato Seed
Organic Katja Tomato Seed (50-60 days)
Sustainably Grown/Approx. 25 seeds per pkg.
Katja is a large pink slicer that not only bears early, but produces copious amount of large fruit that can easily weigh a pound or more.
Plants are semi-determinate which makes them perfect for those that want to get large fruits from a fairly compact plant.
Note: We have been improving this line for earlieness and size. As you will note below the original Katja was 3-5" in size. Our line produces MUCH bigger tomatoes.
Our Friends at Seed Ambassadors say... "Pink 3-5" slicer tomato, very early and reliable. Gorgeous and delicious, Originates in Sludjanka at the shores of lake Bajkal in Siberia, where it is grown outdoors. It is not clear whether it was developed by Katarina Konovna Sviatova (Katja) herself, or if it is an old Russian commercial variety, received from Søren Holt of Frøsamlerne (Danish seed savers) who received it from the Sviatova family in Siberia."
California Grown Heirloom Seed Katja had little problem producing large fruits in cool nights. Which can be a real challenge sometimes. It beat out Brandywine coming in weeks ahead with some of the first big tomatoes of the season. Like most tomatoes it is a heavy feeder, so if you want big fruits don't neglect Katja and she will make you proud!
