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? Productivity was incredible

What are the cons? If I had to pick? Splitting

Review:

Second time growing these. First time was awful. Bad blossom end rot and plants were unhappy overall. This year, I REALLY took care of my soil, and it paid unbelievable dividends. I've probably gotten upwards of 7-8 pounds per plant, maybe 10 pounds on some, and they're setting new fruit currently, despite the 95 degree weather we've had every day for a month. Flavor was outstanding, although I think the Black Giants I grew topped them, but only just. They are super prone to splitting though. They ripen nicely on the vine, but dang...one downpour during ripening and they crack pretty good. Not so badly you can't enjoy them, but they won't keep so well on the counter. I am glad I gave these a 2nd chance on a whim. Best overall tomato in my garden between productivity, flavor, and ease of growth. Will certainly grow again.

What are the pros? taste, taste, taste

What are the cons? susceptible to disease

Review:

These plants very courteously died faster than any tomato I've ever grown. They gave an enormous, early crop of fabulous tomatoes and then got out of the way in time for me to replant with more bullet proof varieties. Will definitely grow again but will take extreme measures against early blight and leaf spot since I do live in the Fungus Belt.

What are the pros? Heavy producer,Taste,color

What are the cons? none.

Review:

What a great little tomato! I grew these alongside Cherokee purples and black krims. These were the heaviest producing and the earliest. What a pretty tomato! They are a bit smaller in size compared to the others mentioned with the cp being the largest. These are beautiful tomatoes with great taste. Nice sweet and juicy. They produced so well all the way in to frost. My plants ended up climbing the fence to the top 6' and became so heavy with fruit that they toppled over and I had to stake an tie them to the fence in multiple areas. The plants didnt mind the bent stalks and revived quickly. The flavor is great and although somewhat small they still make a great sandwich tomato just need to put two slices on bread instead of one. I made excellent basil mozzarella sandwiches with these. Plenty to give to the neighbors. I will grow all three varietie listed above but if you can only grow one and want the most lbs go with this one. If you want larger fruit than go with the Cherokee purple.

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.)
