This variety is a family heirloom from Ussuriysk city (Russian Far East). They have been growing it for ages.
Midseason , indet. RL, 200-400 g fruit 3-6 per truss, no cracking, excellent old-fashion tomato flavour and a very good yield. The color is bright red-orange. Very meaty fruit, few seeds. We call this fruit shape a bomb-like. Usually very healthy plants with thick stem. Great variety indeed.

The color is close to orange here. How about the shape of your fruit?

Not heart, but elongated bomb shaped like on the second picture. A very bright red-almost orange color.
