The first thing I really noticed about this plant was that it looked really cool. I liked the shade of green on its potato leaves, especially when wet. It wasn't early (I'd say midseason), and it wasn't productive at first, but it became productive at the end of the season. The fruits were very small, and definitely yellow (no orange at all) but also one of the sweetest breeds I've tasted. Great taste. Better fresh than cooked. The only consistently sweeter tomato I've tried that comes to mind is Ron's Carbon Copy. I gave a Medovaya Kaplya fruit to my niece, who is said not to like tomatoes, and when I asked her what she thought of it, she said, "It tastes like yummy." I plan to grow this one again in 2017 from saved seeds.
