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
Monomakh or Mononmakh's Hat hails from Novosibirsk, Siberia. This tomato gets its name from a coronation crown that was worn by Russian Tsars such as Peter the Great.
Monomakh produces large, red, tomatoes that weigh 8-16 oz. The flavor is tangy and sweet. The flesh has a smooth texture that is almost creamy. Medium production.
California Grown Heirloom Seed It drove me nuts at first why this tomato always seemed to be thristy...lol...it was always drooping. Turns out that this tomato has a "droopy foliage", but that has nothing to do with its production. We dry farmed it like all the others and it did just fine.
