ARBUZNYI:  A complete weirdo, and one of my favourite beefsteaks! Arbuznyi translates to "watermelon like" in Russian, where this tomato originated. Arbuznyi was one of those awesome commercial Russian types from the 80's that got dropped and almost forgotten. Arbuznyi is still very rare today. Complex flavour drips out of these juicy red fleshed tomatoes. Skin is a nice brick color with occasional green stripes coming from the bum. Ribbed green shoulders.

This odd tomato has very pale yellowish leaves with white flowers. The medium sized fruit are produced in clusters of 6-7 and drop when ripe. The fruit go through a series of color changes starting with green, white, yellow, orange and finally red. This makes the plant very interesting with all different colors of tomatoes on it.

This variety astounded me with its excellent production of huge tomatoes throughout the season. Despite its name, this variety is not a paste tomato although it is meaty enough to use in sauces.
