Probably some of the other varieties would have done much better if planted later when they did not have to endure my 50-degree (F.) garage. But that can't take away from the vigor that the Russian varieties have shown. I know from several years of experience that Linda produces excellent saladette tomatoes and quite a few, given that it is only 15" or so tall. This is the first year with RS, so I can only be hopeful. It is also a similar size plant that supposedly will produce saladettes. They are similar varieties, but I can see differences in the plants. I'll update this later when I've got tomatoes from all three.

I do something similar in that I use the front of my enclosed carport for tomato seedlings when they get too big for the house. I have stapled some poly inside around that section of garage and made a mini green house that warms up more than the rest of the garage due to the heat from the lights and also from the 60W incandescent bulb hanging under the table. It does cool down at night but the 60W bulb helps keep it a little warmer.
Good to know from a fellow Alaskan I’ll have to try these next year!akgardengirl wrote: ↑Sun Mar 29, 2020 3:36 pmI grow Utyonok almost every season. Hardy and reliable here in Anchorage, AK. A friend has made a few crosses using it as mom and those are also tasty and dependable for our climate. I do grow other taller Russian types also. They work well here! Checking out the ones you mentioned from Heritage Seeds.
