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.

Review:

My boyfriend and I planted three of these this year and we have gotten more than 50 pounds of tomatoes. We have been harvesting regularly for over a month now. No unnatural pesticides or chemicals, just manure/compost and water. The plants took off to an incredible degree; more than 8 feet tall with vines branching out more than 20 square feet. The fruit is the best I've ever had; they are very juicy and sweet, they complement just about anything you pair them with. They do well in Oklahoma weather, all you need to do is provide plenty of water and nutrients in the soil. Like I said, we used only compost/manure, nothing unnatural and we've gotten amazing results. Would definitely recommend to someone looking to plant. From the tomatoes we've harvested, we already have next years seeds. So no need for us to buy more. :)

Review:

I didn't realize these would be so big! I kept my Krim and Indigo at one end of the garden, but later thought I accidentally got some Brandywine mixed in at that end. It turned out, that was the Black Krim, and my Brandywine were still at the opposite end. I was not prepared for how big these get. After reading some of these other reviews about the sauces, we'll do the same and add it to our Romas when we cook it down for canning. I bought them because of how high they rank for the vitamins and Lycopene they provide. These are outstanding for slicing and eating as is. I love the slight smokey flavor. The sprouts are very slow from seed until they strengthen up, but have patience. Give them light to get going, but don't overdue the direct sunlight. Once they have their leaves, give them all the sun they can take. These are very robust once they get the purple tinge to the stalks and the underside of the leaves. At that point, keep them watered and in full sun all day.

Review:

I just introduced this tomato to a non-gardening friend. She was a little put off by the color, but once she tasted it, she was very enthusiastic. This is the second or third year I grew this variety and I can't say enough about the delicious, slightly sweet tomato flavor. I can't include any negative observations, because the wonderful flavor overshadows any perceived flaws.

Review:

Love this tomato. Definitely my favorite. Great smoky flavor profile and the tomato is nice large slicer. I add them to my tomato sauce mix for flavor. This year we have had a wet, milder weather pattern and these tomato's have gone nuts. I have easily twice the tomato's from my Krims this year and they are larger than I generally see. Its been a great year for this tomato.

Review:

I am trying this tomato for the first time.It has the longest sprouting time I've ever seen for a tomato. Seeds planted the first week in Marchare barely 1" tall. I hope the long wait for Black Crims will be worth it. My sweet 100s planted the same time are twice as big and my own seeds planted 2 weeks earlier are over a foot tall.
