Tomatoes "Mikado": pink, black, gold, yellow and red

general information

Recently, the lack of control in the seed market has led to the emergence of new varieties and hybrids, which may not be new and fruitful, but packaged into famous varieties.

If earlier vegetable growers clearly knew that the mikado is a large pink tomato, then today the information is blurred and confused.
