- A heirloom native to Southern Russia. Introduced to the west by Nik Peplenov who immigrated to the US in 1999 and brought with him his favorite heirloom seeds from the Rostov Don region of Russia.
- First offered commercially by SeedFest in 2001. In 2003 Gary Ibsen, the owner of TomatoFest , reached an agreement with SeedFest to rename this variety to Sunset's Red Horizon, and he has been offering it since under this name.
- See the history of Sunset's Red Horizon for more information.
- In 2009 Carolyn Male sent her Rostova seeds to Linda Sapp at Tomato Growers Supply hoping that Linda can resurrect and re-offer the correct variety.
