Default Mikhalych - Maybe we should call it Cannonball

You can look this one up on Tatianna's Tomatobase. WOW!!!! This baby puts on a heavy load of huge globe-shaped red tomatoes that have averaged over a pound. These pictures and those on Tatianna's Tomatobase can say more than I can write about. What a wonderful winner this is. Taste is 9.0 out of 10. It is perfect for sandwiches and, as you can see, it will cover the bread.

You gotta try this one.

It's looking beautiful, Ted! Thanks for the recommendation!

BTW, do you know that there's really a cannonball-tree? I've seen it many times in south-east Asia, but always avoided being very close to it, lol!

I know that nobody likes to go by DTM, but would you call this mid, mid/late, or late season? Tatiana's says mid, but I'd like your opinion. Usually, large tomatoes are hit or miss here if they are 85 days or later. I tried Tarasenko 6 this year because it was on the earlier side (and it was) but the taste is just okay for me this year, so I'm intrigued by this one!

My garden was late getting started, but is almost done now with the big flood of fruit. It will be "not so many" from now till frost.

I will have to say that I consider this one a little bit later than "mid". I was harvesting a lot of varieties that I call mid-season (~75 days) before the first Mikhalych started changing color. That would put the number at ~80-85 days. But they are definitely worth the extra wait.

So, I would call it "Mid/Late to Late".

How is fruit set in heat?

I would like to try it but the late part is putting me off.

I loved it. More midseason for me, about 75 days. Nice heavy set of fruits. Got from Tania this year.

From the same nickname group Sereginy and Petrovich are standouts as well. Petrovich is huge plum, very dry for me, more sweet, and Sereginy is heart shape but beefsteak look inside, great taste for both.

I just picked my first Mikhalych. It's huge, my biggest tomato of the year so far.

Mikhalych is definitely an excellent tasting tomato... every year I put it in the 'to grow' pile and then I replace it with something else... just way too many newbies to try, ROFL

Bumping. I have some growing now and was trying to decide to graft it to Big Beef or not. What caught my eye is that the pics in this thread look much different than more recent pics showing ruffled tops. Most say it is a great producer as well so I wonder if I should bother trying to graft it. Opinions appreciated.

Van, I shared seeds from MarinaRussian with Tatianna. Her pictures are all from her growing it. Her pictures show a little more "Ruffling" than mine has ever done. That may be climatic as she is in a cooler area than I am. If you do choose to graft, please post some pictures and keep us informed on the progress.
