“Wine Cove” (Винная Бухта; Vinnaya Bukhta) is a variety that joined my spring lineup of dark tomato trials (the trials were not dark…just the tomatoes). 😊 If I remember correctly, this one I had in a pickle bucket and it produced as though it grew in a 10 gallon pot. The history is best told as it appears on the vendor’s site:
“The seeds were sent to Tatiana’s TOMATObase Seeds in 2014 by Aleksey Kulik, Ukraine 15, who received them from Natalia Khilenko of Armavir, Russia. Mrs. Khilenko and her family have been growing many native Russian heirlooms for many years, and she shared seeds from her seed collection with Aleksey Kulik, a Ukrainian seed vendor.”
Wine Cove produces chunky purple beefsteaks, with very good dark tomato flavor, not too acid but not too sweet, nice and strong flavor.
