60 day. The largest of the early tomatoes, it produces good yields of red tomatoes with a mild tomato flavor. If you have a short season or just want early slicing tomatoes, Moskvich is an excellent choice.
Minimum of 25 seeds per packet.

I am not a tomato expert. Moskovich is the first heirloom tomato variety that I grew. What I didn't realize is that it is amazingly delicious. I have been told by Annie's here that it isn't their most delicious tomato but I have a hard time believing that. Maybe it is the mild flavor, with just enough sweetness to make a non-tomato lover love it!
I have pruned and grown single vine, cut back and had them grow a lot of new tomatoes late in the season. They just grow and produce, grow and produce. They love to be top-dressed with compost several times in the season, and I did add organic fertilizer a couple of times. I harvested pounds and pounds of green tomatoes in October here in Connecticut, many of which ripened indoors for those last few tasty tomatoes. Easy to grow, delicious, and meaty. Oh, they are delicious in homemade fresh salsa, too.
The only issue I had was that they wouldn't ripen when we had a heat wave. They just waited until the temps dropped back below 85° and then they all started ripening and gave me a summer of delicious tomatoes.

Moskvitch was the first heirloom tomatoe I ever grew and I was blown away. I have been been planting it for about eight years now and have never been disappointed. The plants are large and require staking or strong, tall cages. I had medium to large crops, depending on weather conditions, consistently with no pest problems.
The tomatoe itself is sweet, juicy and firm, not squishy. All in all, a great all around tomatoe. I even used any excess with paste tomatoes for sauce. Very low acid.
