“Ladybug” (Bozhja Korovka, Божья коровка), is one of three tomato varieties I grew this season that proceeded to flood me out of house and home with their abundant fruiting. This is a Russian variety, so far as I know, but it took everything my garden could throw at it…heat, humidity, insects…and just kept making tomatoes. This is described as being a 2 foot tall determinate, but I found it to be more of 2.5 to 3 feet tall grown in an Earth Box with happy soil and nutrients.
Ladybug’s fruits are shiny fire-engine red, elongated cherries. I suppose one could think of them as cute ladybugs. The flavor is strong, and there is more juice and gel than flesh. Because of this, I did best enjoy slices of Ladybug on top of a Triscuit (black pepper and sea salt flavor) with a spoon of homemade blue cheese dip (lots of blue cheese, touch of sugar, coarsely ground black pepper, cream cheese, bit of whipping cream…not especially heart healthy, but so delicious).
If you are a person with plenty of experience in planting tomatoes and getting a very scanty harvest, you might want to try Ladybug to bring about a sea-change.
