‘Moskvich’ was created at the Institute of General Genetics. N. I. Vavilova in Moscow, Russia, from crossing varieties ‘Nevskiy’ and ‘Smena 373’ and is intended for cultivation in many regions, including the Arkhangelsk and Murmansk regions, the republics of Komi and Karelia in Russia, where the growing conditions are truly extreme. ‘Moskvich’ not only withstands them well, growing in open ground, but also gives a good crop of fruit, most of which turn red on the vine. Indeterminate, but not very tall plants with dark green, regular leaf foliage. Good yield of about 5-6 red, round and sometimes slightly oblate fruit on each truss. Early, about 70 days from transplant.
