  • Russian commercial variety, introduced to North America by Andrey Baranovski of Minsk, Belarus in the late 2000s as Pink Honey, which is a translated name.
  • 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.
  • First offered in the Seed Savers 2007 Yearbook by Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois (IL LO N), who received the seeds from Andrey Baranovski of Minsk, Belarus.

Also known as

Russian name: Розовый Мёд

The name means 'Pink Honey' in Russian, and that was the name that this variety was originally introduced with to North American gardeners.
Unfortunately some commercial vendors in North America also offer this variety under translated name.
