Gardeners' Notes:

I really liked Russian Bogatyr. The tomatoes have a bold, old-fashioned tomatoey flavor. They are red, large, and perfectly round. The plant produced late season and produced decent yields. This one is a good, easy to grow red that would make a nice garden staple.

Nice yield of large beefsteak type fruits, 1-2 lbs. From Andrey Baranovski of Minsk, Belarus, possibly bred in Russia, but not known for sure. Good flavor.
