  • Russian variety from Siberia region.
  • Introduced to North America as Eagle's Beak by Andrey Baranovski of Minsk, Belarus, who shared the seed with Neil Lockhart in mid-2000s. Neil shared the seeds with other SSE members in 2007, and this is how it found its way into the SSE Yearbook in 2007.
  • Also introduced in Seed Savers 2008 Yearbook under its original Russian name by Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T).
  • Tatiana's note: We do not support names translation, as it leads to confusion and the same variety being offered under different names. Please always use the original variety name to avoid confusion and preserve variety's roots and history. All the translated names are considered to be 'marketing' names, and not actual variety names.
