Seeds were sent to me in a swap as Bijskij Zeltyi, but after a consultation with Carolyn and a check of Tatiana's tomato database, I have concluded that they were mislabled, since Zeltyi apparently means "yellow".

At any rate this red plum variety is VERY productive. Bearing many small 2-3 inch firm tomatoes over a two month period, just one plant satisfied all our canning needs and I had to give lots away. The flavor is mild so I didn't use it in salads.
