I saw a new Russian GWR commercial variety. 'Antonovka Medovaya' (or, Antonovka Honey)
Has anyone had the opportunity to try it yet? Maybe it's a so new it's only hit the market now..

Green Tiger was the best of all the greens I've grown, super fruity, prone to splitting after rain though.
The next best was a big green cherry, Emerald, I got from Tania. Huge plants with fruit size like those of Mountain Magic. Thin skin but also easy to split and can not be squished.
Malachite box was good I now grow every year.
Green Zebra was sour and mushy. Cherokee Green had many deformed fruit the one time I tried it. Lime Green salad was very productive, but taste too bland. We do not have intense summer heat to bring out the best flavors for many varieties.

A friend of mine who grows a lot of tomatoes absolutely loves Green Tiger (as seen at BC), and also loves Aunt Ruby's German Green.

Although Green Giant is one of my favorite-tasting tomatoes, I should note that mine in 2015 tasted a *lot* better with more sun (and they were prone to concentric cracking when they became ripe).

Sounds interesting NarnianGarden. I'd like to grow a lot of Russian tomatoes. Seems like most are the cats meow.. Jimbo .
