70-80 days. A unique, large 8-12 oz. dark tomato exhibiting a rich, deep purplish-brown color. Some seed savers say it is the best tasting of all the dark tomatoes. Very rich, old-fashioned flavor, sweet and spicy. A rare Russian heirloom.

What are the pros? so good

What are the cons? hard time setting fruit

Review:

These tomatoes are delicious. They have that perfect tomato taste that I crave, however, off my 2 plants I got less than a dozen tomatoes. I found several of my heirloom varieties had a hard time setting fruit in the South Louisiana heat and humidity. (Heat index from upper 90s to lower 100s.) Even with the poor yield, I plan to plant them again next year, they are that good!

What are the pros? flavor, flavor, flavor, flavor

What are the cons? the deer liked them too

Review:

This was my first year to grow Tulas, and I only got a few this year -- thank you, deer. But they were all worth their weight in gold in terms of flavor. I've tasted lots of varieties of tomatoes over the years (it's one of my hobbies), and this one zoomed immediately to the top of my favorites list and will probably stay there for decades to come. For my money, this one tastes so good, it's worth almost any amount of trouble to get even just one or two a year. (The rest of my family is unable to comment on the flavor of the Tulas as I fought them off with forks and table salt to be able to eat them all myself. They had to eat the Brandywines instead, normally not an unpleasant fate.)

Review:

Friend gave me a little seedling to try but I had no room left in the tomato garden except a big empty pot to plant it in. We had a lousy planting season with too much rain and not enough sun in early spring, and once the 'maters started flowering and giving fruit, the humidity hit causing mildew, and then a 4-week heatwave (So. Calif.). Black from Tula in the huge pot did okay even after my chicken decided to nest in it and broke off one of it's 3 main stems. The potted Tula still managed to give some little 'maters once in a while and they were delicious so I'll try it again but in the raised bed next time. All my dark tomatoes have become my favourites like Tula, Black Zebra, Big Zebra, Purple Russian and our favourite green one is Green Moldovan. All my garden bed red tomatoes were prolific producers but just didn't have the great taste that all my non-red tomatoes gave.

Review:

I'm having some problems getting this variety of tomato to germinate (despite many others from Baker Creek doing well in the same conditions). It is rainy season here in Thailand, so humidity is high, which might have 'everything' to do with it. But I've tried several different combinations of soil/compost/worm castings/plastic bag over pot and nothing seems to work. (As I said, other varieties have been much easier!) Its a shame cause I was looking forward to this one. Maybe I'll have more success once the rain passes.

Review:

First year growing these tomatoes and they are one of the best tasting ones I've had even though they did crack. But they survived the drought & 100+ heat pretty good. Will try these again next year hopefully w/o the summer like this year.
