All Russian heirlooms.
Over 100 varieties are listed - many are not listed in NA sites, including tomatobase.
2013 harvested seeds for 2014 season.
Currently 20% off all prices (which are quite low)
Shipping is .99 for your total order.

I have no affiliation with this company except that I placed an order.

I've placed a couple of orders with them and the service was quick. Really liked the look of the store and would like to try some of the herbs or carrots as well.
Of course it's hard to say anything about the seeds until next spring, but the business side was great. :)

I couldn't get the ebay link to work. I assume this is the same outfit. It comes from the link NarnianGarden posted.
[URL]http://stores.ebay.com/nikitovkaseeds[/URL]

I also can't get the any of the pages to change from the first page to any of the subsequent pages. The contact page also doesn't go anywhere. This is happening on both Foxfire and Chrome. If no one has an email address for them, I'll try a whois search to find one and let them know.

NarnianGarden October 6, 2013 10:57 AM

Yes, that's the correct link - the Ebay layout is quite clear and organized, imho. Tania (that's her name) was very quick in answering questions about varieties, germination tips etc., when I had something to clarify.
All in all, EBay is a danger zone - a couple of years ago it was hard-to-get cosmetics, now it's vegetable seeds. I don't know what is more fun, but both sure can empty your wallet :D

I had the same problem Doug, using Explorer, and I tried a few times before giving up :?.

I sent an email to the address I found from the whois search letting her know what problems I was having.

The store within E-Bay does work and displays all of their products properly. I have noticed this morning that the link I originally provided to the EBay store does not work when I am not logged in. Try searching for the seller ID nastjuschka06 under "Advanced Search - Find items by seller." or conversely, just search for "Sanka tomato seeds" (within EBay) to go to a first item. Once you locate an item, there is a link to their EBay store without a login.

As folks note, their own site [url]www.nikitovka.com[/url] does not function, but the setup and product counts are identical to the EBay store.

Concerns about using EBay? With Nikitoka you can only use PayPay with the inherent security built into their model & in addition, you will have 45 days to register a complaint if you have problems - lots of time to do germination tests if you are worried about old seeds.

For some strange reason I had no problem getting on this site. I wonder why. Oh well.

jon:?!?:

Doug9345 October 9, 2013 11:37 AM

I emailed Tania at the email address I found through a whois search. I got this reply back yesterday.

Hello Doug,

Thanks a lot for your message. The problems on the site should now be

They are from Ukraine and have got many variety names transliterated from Russian to Ukrainian and then to English.
A mix of Ukrainian and Russian varieties (nothing rare) with a lot of wrong translated names. Be careful.

NarnianGarden October 10, 2013 03:09 AM

Yes, I realize that whenever there is adjective 'rare', that's probably just marketing speak, not a realistic description. What she sells, are perhaps more uncommon in the West. I've purchased some tomato varieties I hadn't seen anywhere else, so to me, that was rare indeed. :) Just hoping they will grow true to their description.

Hi, new to this forum. I hope it's ok for me to post here since the previous post was
October 2013. Hope it's not too old to discuss ...

I was looking at these seeds company. My grandfather was born in Ukraine so I have interests in it. He said that he had such delicious vegetables and fruits growing up near Black Sea. Especially tomatoes and watermelons.

I was able to find Ukrainian tomatoes elsewhere and have planted. However I am interested in this Nikitovka seeds - in particular the "Cranberry Sugar - Klyukva Sakhare"
[url]https://www.nikitovka.com/201412/19/2271845010/201412Tomato-detail.html[/url]

I believe the above is the link to them.
I'd prefer not to ship from Europe as it seems it may increase the possibility of damage or lost package. ???

Can someone give me advice on this? Or perhaps tell me what a similar variety of tomato is to these? As for this particular seed, is it easy to order from Nikitovka?

Thanks for any comments.

NarnianGarden February 18, 2014 01:31 PM

LinaLola - I have purchased from their Ebay store, which you can easily find under the same name. 'Klyukva Sakhare' is currently growing under a lamp, I hope to re-pot it in a month, so I have some micro tomato plants before my indeteminates will be sown.
Don't know if the variety is true, but the transaction was fast and hassle-free. :)
I found her to be very helpful and friendly!
