70 days. The translated name means "Malachite Box," named after the lovely green boxes that are made from this mineral that comes from the Ural mountains and other areas. This early, light-to-olive green, medium-sized tomato has succulent bright green flesh that is very flavorful and tasty. Plants are productive even in the north, as this variety was developed at Svetlana Farm in Russia, and it has been tested in Siberia! Our grower likes to make a unique green ketchup from this variety.

What are the pros? Good tasting

What are the cons? Bad Disease resistance

Review:

From all the tomatoes I tried this year, this one was a bust in terms of disease resistance. I lost all 3 plants as the weather was very humid/rainy last month.

What are the pros? Vigorous fruit setter

What are the cons? Poor disease resistance

Review:

I was very excited to grow Malakhitovaya Shkatulka because I love green-when-ripes. Every seed I planted germinated and the seedlings were the most beautiful, leafy, and vigorous of the 8 varieties I started. I planted 2 of these tomatoes and was impressed by how their vegetative growth and fruitset outpaced even my hybrid cherry and grape varieties. Unfortunately, in early July while loaded with unripe fruit, both plants succumbed to a wilt (I think fusarium) almost overnight, along with my Paul Robesons. My other heirlooms, even the famously finicky Brandywine, are definitely showing signs of disease, but have survived to bear and ripen fruit. I can't comment on the tomato's taste (made good pickles, at least), but I would recommend this tomato based on fruitset alone if you have healthy, disease-free soil. In my garden, though, it was a bust. Next year I may try grafting them to a disease-resistant rootstock.

What are the pros? heavy crops and great taste

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

What a great tomato this is, even though I have a hard job convincing people it is ripe. The next problem is that, having tasted it they want to know what it is and, like the big fruit, its a bit of a mouthful. One plant had its top pinched out by accident and only had one truss but the advantage was that these fruit ripened extra early and they are delicious. They are just what I want in a tomato - big, great for slicing and with a fantastic taste!

Review:

I tried this variety out of sheer curiosity. I didn't expect anything special but was I ever wrong. I planted 18 varieties looking for disease resistance, drought tolerance, production, size, and flavor. I have narrowed my choices to five and to my surprise Malakhitovaya Shkatulka Tomato is definitely one of the five. This tomato is an excellent slicer, has great flavor, handles dry weather much better than many of the other varieties, and it never suffered from insects or fruit disfigurements. Everyone I have shared this tomato with has raved about it. Bottom line, this is a great tomato everyone should try.

Review:

Wow! What a superb tasting tomato! My family and friends were all shocked at how delicious Shkatulka is. I did have to convince them that it is was ripe, but they raved about it once they tried it, and its also best when just a shade of yellow is present. It held up well in wet weather this year when the other tomatoes tasted a bit bland from all the rain. An added bonus, the mockingbird never thought it was ripe, so no bird pecking it before fully ripe on the vine! Love this tomato and will include in my garden every year.
