(74 days) (aka 'Drushba', 'Druzhba') An old Bulgarian heirloom ('Druzhba' means "friendship" in Bulgarian), highly recommended by Dr. Carolyn Male. It is a wonderful tomato all-round - disease-resistant, highly adaptable to a wide range of growing conditions, and a heavy producer of 8 oz. fruits that have a sweet-yet-tart flavour. Dr. Male considers it "one of the finest heirlooms available". We have found it to be a reliable producer of good solid red tomatoes.
