Review:

I have really hot, arid summers where I live. It has already reached 117 degrees this year by the first week of July. I've harvested more tomatoes off my two Cosmonaut Volkov plants (I plant 2 of each variety) than any of the others. They make a great pasta sauce, and have a deep red, delicious flavor for slicing and eating fresh. A little juicy and plenty of flesh. I will be saving the best looking fruits and save some seed because these have earned a spot in my garden next year.

What are the pros? Large, good for slicing

What are the cons? Flavor ok but nothing special

Review:

To start with, I had this plant in a container, and a small one at that. It had only potting soil-good quality, but no native dirt-so it is entirely possible these factors impacted flavor and texture. I had heard numerous good reviews of this tomato including one from The Splendid Table. My experience was that the plant was disease free and a good producer of medium large red tomatoes. I was actually impressed by how much consistently large fruit it produced in a container. Unfortunately, I found the ripe fruit to be somewhat mealy and bland which seems to be the exact opposite of other reviewers. It has enough promise for me that I am going to try it in the ground next year to see if the flavor improves. It would have been a perfect slicing tomato if it weren't for the flavor/texture issue.

Review:

We had a hot drought ridden summer here in western Kentucky but Cosmonaut Volkov were the first to produce delicious fruit and continued on producing throughout the season. Nice tomatoes with a good tart flavor.

Review:

Mid-Michigan. First summer growing and couldn't be more pleased with size and quantity of these excellent tasting tomatoes. Produced during the 90 degree weather down to nights in the 40's. Just picked the last tomatoes on September 12 since we are expecting frost soon. Had some "cracking" but not too badly, due to the weather changes, I'm sure. A favorite tomato (only 3 plants grown) this summer.

Review:

We planted these in our container garden (18 gal. storage containers with drainage holes drilled through the bottom) this past year (2009), and were quite happy with the results. The plants produced numerous medium-sized tomatoes that tasted great. Towards the end of the season, lots of the tomatoes ended up "cracking." Since I'm not an expert gardener, I'm not sure what caused it -- too dry, too wet, or just something that happens with Cosmonaut Volkov tomatoes.
