- Russian variety introduced to North American tomato gardeners by Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T) in 2003. Tatiana obtained the seeds from her mother-in-law in the late 1990s.
- This is likely a strain of the known Russian pink heart-shaped variety, Bychje Serdtse, which has been grown for years in South Urals region by Tatiana's husband's grandmother, Anna Kukharchik, on her farm in the 1980-1990s. Anna had been saving seeds from selected plants for best quality fruit and disease resistance in the cold and short summer area (zone 3).
