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? early, flavor is unique, grows

What are the cons? ripen too quickly in storage

Review:

Been growing these for 20 years and they are reliable croppers. Beautiful bushy plants that ripen fruit in my area within 65 days of transplant, just about 10 days after early girl and 3 or 4 days after pruden's purple tomatoes. I got my seeds both from totally tomatoes seed co. and from pinetree seeds co. and my own saved seeds. This year I will be planting seed from baker creek for comparison, on growth and flavor. To me these tomatoes taste like a salty/sweet and juicy gift of the garden gods! I always grow one plant in the greenhouse, so I can harvest fresh fruit longer into the season. Outdoors they seem to produce best out of the wind to keep the cracks and scars away, and this plant produces more flavorful crops in a leaner soil with a mulch of our abundant quack grass to keep moisture levels consistant. I have found that mulching around the tomato plants with pulled weeds and cut quack grass feeds the plants and totally puts an end to blossom end rot. Try growing black krim!

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Should have planted more

Review:

We love the flavor of these! I even did paste with them because they tasted so good (although next time I should try paste tomatoes). I grew these alongside corsican basil (which I got from baker creek) and all the plants did great! There was almost no pest problems until the middle of semptember (aphids. I just pulled the last tomato plant out a couple days ago and let the chickens have it). The only real complaint I would have about these is some of these split but still did great :-) the sizes varied a bit but on average I was getting mostly 8-10 oz tomatoes. Definitely will grow again

What are the pros? Early

What are the cons? Prone to cracking

Review:

These were extremely early, which is always gratifying! We liked the flavor. A bit too juicy for us, and prone to cracking. The vines also died off earlier than other varieties in my garden.

What are the pros? Flavour

What are the cons? Deep cracks, Didn't get many

Review:

I live in Ontario and I'm on the fence about this one. We had extreme heat all summer and when it rained it poured so lots of fluctuations in water. I got some tomatoes but not a lot and the ones I did get had deep cracks that I had to cut out because they were really black and looked moldy. The tomato did taste very good but my overall experience wasn't the same as others so am a little disappointed. Now the tomatoes were planted at the back of my yard so it's possible it didn't get as much sun as it would have liked so I'll try again next year in a different spot and see how they do.

What are the pros? flavor, texture

Review:

I bought 4 Black Krim plants this spring- first time trying these. They are easily the best garden tomato I've ever had. Vibrant colors with an unbelievably good taste. They are not mealy in the slightest- just bursting with juice and flavor. My other favorites are Brandy Wine, Old German, Celebrity, and Golden Jubilee, but the Krim is in a league of its own.
