70 days. The name translated means Malachite Box, named after the lovely green jewelry boxes made from the malachite 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? Early, great taste & potential

What are the cons? None

Review:

Just had a wonderful holiday BLT Club sandwich using the first tomato of the season, which happened to be this variety. It was a stunning size, being nearly 5 inches across. And the colors in the skin (yellow, red, brown, olive, and several shades of green) as it ripened were amazing. Sure enough, it was a brilliant green inside, juicy but solid flesh with not many seeds, a bit acidic, with a delightful full-flavored and sweet taste. I sure hope that in spite of the brutal heat that appears to be coming on this summer, we will be able to have several more of these to enjoy. This had good germination, set the first tomato out of 13 other varieties, and has set several more tomatoes already. The plant appears to be very sturdy and is growing quite well, even with it being in a large container and not planted in-ground. Can't wait to have more of these to eat!

What are the pros? Early maturity

What are the cons? Early Wilt

Review:

Consistently the first tomato ready in N Wisconsin, but also the first with disease. My children ask when these are going to be ready. Our favorite tomato from 5 years of BK seed. Mature early, and plants die early. I have saved seed, but PLEASE keep these available!

What are the pros? Flavor and color.

What are the cons? Nothing this summer

Review:

I grew in Kansas and these tomatoes were huge and the plants produced a lot. The skins are a little stronger than other tomatoes I grow. Similar to the Emerald Apple I got from rare seeds but much larger. Incredible flavor. Reminds me of apple Kool-Aid or jolly ranchers. I'll be grow these again for sure. This summer was much cooler and wetter than normal after a hot June, so fantastic conditions for the low plains.

What are the pros? early, productive, great taste

What are the cons? BER prone

Review:

Absolutely delicious. More brightness/acid backbone than most green-when-ripes for unusually bright, balanced flavor with typical GWR spicy/herbal notes and luscious texture. The first of my large tomato plants to flower and set fruit, and is now, in late September, over 8 feet tall and still loaded. For best flavor, pick when it has a pronounced amber blush on the blossom end but before it gets too mushy. Did well against disease and pests and handled cold like a champ, but in hot weather I did find it very prone to the mushy, "stealth" form of blossom end rot, i.e., the kind that doesn't show until the fruit is nearly ripe and liquefies the bottom of the fruit under the skin. Granted, this summer was unusually brutal, and I had these plants in a new bed with poor tilth, but they did suffer much more from BER than other tomatoes in that bed. Still worth growing--production is so good that losing some to BER hardly mattered, and it's probably fine in normal years.
