What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Plant and soil born disease

Review:

Awesome texture and flavor! Husband and I love the acidic tangy flavor and buy seeds that specify this quality. Awesome for that "oh yeah" taste on a sandwich! Our problem is plant diseases where we live. Wish we had some good knowledge on products to use but the past two years we have had great success with grafting the Black Krim plants and other Heirloom tomato plants on a disease resistant rootstock, and it works very well!

What are the pros? Density of Flesh is AWESOME

What are the cons? Not Enough! Plant More!

Review:

This is a favorite for any Sandwich! The stems get as thick as your fingers, which is good because these are nice juicy tomatoes that have even flesh throughout, not just skin. When you slice them, they are thick like a slice of homemade bread, with a deep color, not transparent like store bought. We had 3 plants in a square foot garden next to other tomato varieties. These guys may need a little more space. The fruit was low hanging and we got no more than 6 per plant. This year, I am planting more, because we love the taste!

My Alltime Favourite Tomato
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

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.

Great taste

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.
