80 days. Dark red-purple fruit, rich sweet flavor. One of the best. It always places high in tomato taste trials. It's very juicy. An heirloom from Russia with very unique looking, large fruit. I really like the wonderful flavor. It's popular at many markets on the West Coast; also a favorite of many fine chefs.

What are the pros? Unbeatable flavour

What are the cons? They tend to crack easily

Review:

Black Krim are far and away the best tomatoes I've ever grown. The flavour is amazing. They are sweet/tart and so juicy. Best eaten fresh and warm from the garden. They also tend to spoil in 3-4 days after picking so they are great for home use,but not a good farmers market tomato.They bear very well,but do require cages to prevent rotting and help prevent cracking. They bear the best if continuously lightly pruned throughout the summer. In nearly 20 years of growing them they are the only variety that has never gotten blossom end rot,even when the varieties on either side have it. They also are very blight resistant. Black Krim are great for fresh eating,canning,sauce,chutney and V-8. Theymake an excellent sauce when paired with a paste tomato as they add an extra bit of flavour. I would recommend these to anyone.

What are the pros? taste, size, appearance

What are the cons? Wish it was more prolific.

Review:

Wife got some seeds last year. Excellent taste - rich and complex. So I planted more of the seeds this year (in containers). No pesticides, just good soil, compost, and monthly fertilizing. We're in zone 9, maybe 10 during a hot year. Got some splitting, but that's probably my error for over-watering. Not prolific production; about average. Great on sandwiches - makes for a terrific BLT.

Review:

I grew these for the first time, four plants: all were leggy, stalks would snap, fruit was slow to develop, yield was feeble, fruit was small, taste was weak and watery. They grew next to Black from Tula and the latter plants were sturdy, prolific and yielded densely fleshed rich fruit. Go figure...
