“Mushroom Basket,” or Gribnoe Lukoshko (Грибное лукош), is a Russian commercial variety that was originally sold in the US under the translated name. The seeds are fairly difficult to find these days. The color on this variety is an amazingly rich rosy pink. Mushroom Basket has meaty flesh that is good and sweet. Some tasters might prefer a more acid flavor, but those who like sweet tomatoes will enjoy this one. The shape reminds me of an expensive and frivolous pink pleated purse. Fruit set and health was surprisingly good; pleated varieties do not normally do well in my heat and humidity.
