Sorry, I don't know what you have.  What I do know is the Druzba I got from 
the same place does not appear to be a Druzba.  It too is taking a hit from 
blight (but then so are most of my tomatoes-this has been a summer from hell 
as far as tomatoes & disease are concerned.  For what it is worth, I have 
had good luck with TGS regarding their seeds.
