Here is the Cosmonaut Volkov Tomato, Lycopersicon esculentum “Cosmonaut Volkov Handles cold…unscathed,” says Anne Elder. A superb home-garden variety with good commercial potential both outdoors and in tunnels, Cosmonaut always tastes good, occasionally sublime. The best two tomatoes I’ve ever eaten were Cosmonauts from different gardens in different years. Usually ripens quantities of deep red slightly flattened 8–12 oz globes at the beginning of August when tomato craving is at its peak. Even in cold summers, it will produce dependably by mid-August. What makes Cosmonaut so special is its juice: sweet, rich and full-bodied. Volkov was the Russian explorer who fell through space. From Dnepropetrovsk in the Ukraine, brought to America by the Seed Savers Exchange. Indeterminate open pollinated 65 days.
