Carolyn, I did not know there was such a group - if there is, I want to be part of it too!
You are correct in your assumption that you've got 'Korol Sibiri' seeds.

I am growing Korol Sibiri from 2 different sources this year, and Valery Popenko just sent me an email 2 days ago that he is sending me Zolotoy Korol seeds. If they arrive within the next 2 weeks, I may be able to grow them as well.

Ami, looks like semences-partage also got it under the 'new' name that was given by Baker Creek, but they think it is 'Zolotoy Korol'...

Always such a mess with these translated names... Sigh.

Tania, since you started this thread I consider those who have posted here who are actually growing Korol Sibiri to be THE group and b'c of that I see you as Head of this group. I was going to write Korol of the group but didn't b'c I don't know the word for Queen, as translated.

Carolyn, aha, got smart about it and will refer to you as:

королева
koroleva

........ of The Korol Sibiri goup and from trying to learn the Russian alphabet from a book Alex sent me I could actually translate the Russian word for Queen.

I have seeds from King of Siberia, got them from a french man who told me that it is not the same as Golden King of Siberia, but it was his best tasting tomato last year.

Me too, if I may

My Korol Sibiri seeds have just sprouted and popped up their little heads

I hope the Zolotoy Korol seeds get to you in time for sowing this season, it will be good to read your comparison.

I'll join any group with good tasting tomatoes. If I need to show up in drag, just say the word.

Clara sent me seeds of Korol Sibiri a while ago. I will sow it of course, and it probably matches her description.

Clara also sent me some Korol Sibiri.

So I will grow out that one. But as I don't have the other won't be able to compare of course.

First few fruits (Korol Sibiri) all around 4 ½ to 5 ¼ oz, thick walls and firm fruit, mild taste with almost a floral or fruit under taste - good

I bought this as a seedling

The seedling grew up and produced this

From the colour, I assume that the fruit is this, King of Siberia (Король Сибири)

and not this, The Golden King (Золотой король)

Very few seeds inside

I have grown 'Zolotoy Korol' (Golden King) and it indeed was lemon-yellow, and small in stature (but not in flavor!) I'd say, it was semi-det.

The seeds were from Tania, so it seems the confusion had been cleared by the time I made the purchase.

(Another semi-det yellow/golden/orange heart from Russia is Zolotoy Serdtse, which I also have grown and found very tasty even when picked green and ripened indoors..)

RainCoast, what you have got is definitively Korol Sibiri - King of Siberia. I've grown it years ago and my tomatoes looked the same as yours.

I just harvested my first 'Korol Sibiri' tomato. Taste a bit salty, mild and sweet. I kind of like it.
