More Tomato Love! Growing something new!

Gardeners begin to dream of their summer gardens about a week after they rip out the previous season.
Most start thinking about what they will grow next year and where. 

For me, it's all about Tomato's! I start searching for ones I have never tried or heard of! 

This year I am growing a new Tomato for The Populuxe Seed Bank The seed bank sent me seeds to grow. 
I will be growing the "Russian Persimmon" While I am growing, I will also be saving anywhere from 200-400 seeds to send back to the seed bank.

Russian Persimmon Seed Starts

The Russian Persimmon is new to me, I have never grown this variety before.
 I am told they are a yellowish orange tomato. I have heard they have a good flavor and are more acidic then regular yellow type tomato's.
These plants get about 4 ft. tall and bear alot of fruit. 

Russian Persimmon Tomato's in the Greenhouse

They are to be planted in the garden in the next week or so! Crazy California weather has prolonged my veggies from making their debut in the garden. I will be growing these in an isolated part of the garden, so the seeds will stay true!

Have you grown Russian Persimmon Tomato's?
Tell me all about it!

Happy Gardening Friends!!!


  1. I am growing persimmon tomatoes this year...I am not sure if they are the same as your russian ones though. Just looked online...they might be the same thing...we'll have to compare pics and see if they are the same this summer.

  2. GardenMom, we will have to compare, if summer ever comes for either of us!!!
