  • Developed by the late Ukrainian (Soviet) tomato amateur breeder Fedor (Fyodor) Tarasenko, who loved indeterminate varieties and specialized in breeding tomatoes with high yields.
  • The pedigree is not known, but it could be a further selection from Yubileynyi Tarasenko for longer 'nipples'.
  • There is also a determinate version of this tomato sold commercially by GL Seeds, which is obviously incorrect, as Tarasenko was specializing in breeding indeterminate varieties.

Russian name: Легенда Тарасенко

The name means 'Tarasenko's Legend' in Russian.
