SOYUZ ELEVEN–A fantastic new tomato | New World Seeds & Tubers

This has been a crazy year for me….odd weather and lots of work planting and saving seeds.  Good news on tomato varieties…..watch for some exciting new created varieties out of combining heirloom cultivars.

SOYUZ ELEVEN is a case in point.  This is a fairly stable line that I created out of the cross of Volkov and Black Plum…both Russian varieties.  It was named for the last space mission of Cosmonaut Volkov who died upon re-entry to earth, and the capsule experienced a malfunction and hypoxiation killed Volkov and two other Cosmonauts   back in 1971.

SOYUZ ELEVEN is a near perfect black tomato resembling a smaller version of a Cherokee Purple.  It has the smokiness of a lot of black tomatoes but, “Man….is it ever tangy with a touch of sweetness!” The fruits are about 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter with about 5 to 6 locules.  Great production and the flavor was enhanced partly due to absolutely no artificial irrigation growing on a raised bed under a low tunnel.

The seed will be entered into the list of tomato varieties available later on this year. Exclusive variety from New World Seeds & Tubers

Stay tuned for new posts from Tom Wagner….heirlooms from the future to talk about!
