Cosmonaut Volkov tomato


Prolific and juicy beefsteak tomato.  This compact fruit looks more like a slicing tomato than a beefsteak tomato.  Originally from the Ukraine.  The story behind this tomato is that it comes from the Garden of Mikhailovich Maslov who gave the name Cosmonaut Volkov after his astronaut friend Vladislav Volkov who died as he was in re-entry to earth on his first trip from the earth station in orbit.  Now that is true friendship.
