58 days to maturity. Short Indeterminate. An ethnic Russian variety brought to the U.S. in 1995 when we donated seed for food crops in exchange for starter seed of ethnic varieties. This one comes from a region 60 km south of Moscow. As is characteristic of many ethnic varieties, the fruits are somewhat variable in size and flavor. The short vines (3 1/2 feet) are very productive and are well-suited for ground culture, staking, or growing in small cages. Fruits average 1.5 x 2" and are resistant to cracking. Belyj Naliv was one of the better early-season Russian varieties that we trialed.
