The Mushroom Basket Tomato is a delightful heirloom variety that originated in Russia. Packet : 10 seeds

  • The Mushroom Basket tomato gets its name because when the fruit is turned upside down, it resembles a mushroom cap.
  • It produces large, ruffled tomatoes with deep watermelon-pink color and cream-colored speckles.
  • These tomatoes weigh 8-16 ounces each and have a unique appearance due to their ribbed and pleated texture
  • It’s an indeterminate variety, meaning it continues to produce fruit throughout the growing season.
  • The plants reach a compact height of 4-6 feet.
  • Sturdy supports (stakes, cages, trellis) are needed to handle the weight of the fruit, which grows in thick bunches toward the center of the plant.
  • The Mushroom Basket tomato matures in 70-80 days

Inside, the tomato is firm with minimal gel and seeds.

Its taste is sweet and juicy, making it perfect for slicing.


Tomatoes need a sunny, but sheltered, location where they get at least 6 hours of sunlight.


The soil tomatoes grow in should be well-draining and amended with compost and decomposed manure to a depth of 24-36 inches. For heavy or clay soils, raised beds with a soil mix tailored to the needs of tomatoes should be used for planting tomatoes.


Spread a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around your tomato plants, but keep the ground clear of mulch three inches around the base of the plant. Water on a regular basis at the base of the plant to keep the foliage dry. Provide 1-2 inches of water each week to keep the ground moist (not soggy).


Once blossoms start to appear on your tomato plant, add extra compost, a cup of compost tea, or a slow-release tomato fertilizer on the soil near the roots. Do this every 1-2 weeks until the first frost of the fall kills the plant.

Tomatoes require specific nutrients (such as calcium) to produce their best crops of fruit.
