70 days. Indeterminate, regular leaf (thin and wispy). This Russian heirloom won our hearts with its texture and perfectly balanced flavor, exactly how a tomato should taste! The Roma-shaped tomatoes are a sunset orange hue with a long pointed nose, hence the name buratino, which is Russian for Pinocchio! We love this all-purpose sauce, slicing and snacking tomato because there are no compromises to be made — it boasts outrageous flavor, exceptionally high yields, hardy plants and multi-purpose! The fruit is larger than a Roma, averaging 5-7 ounces with a small seed cavity and thick, meaty flesh that drips with citrusy, fruity yellow tomato taste. This variety is believed to have been introduced by the Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry in St. Petersburg, Russia.
