Product Description
Considered one of the best flavored "black" tomatoes around, this open-pollinated, heirloom variety from the Black Sea area of Russia produces heavy yields of dark brown-red fruits, even in high temperatures. Black Krim Tomato's six-inch, meaty fruits weigh 10-16 ounces each and have a rich flavor with a hint of saltiness. The tomatoes are tops for slicing and eating fresh, on sandwiches and in salads. They're also good for freezing and canning. The indeterminate vines require staking. 80 days to maturity.
