80-90 days. Attractive tomatoes are the shape and size of a Bartlett pear with a beautiful purplish-brick color; the fruit are perfect and smooth with no cracks. The flavor is absolutely sublime, having all the richness of fine chocolate. This was our heaviest producer for 2004. The plants produced loads of fruit all summer long. It has become a favorite with many seed savers and we are glad to be able to offer such a colorful variety. It is believed to have come from Russia, so don't ask me about the name!

Really nice great tasting prolific tomato.m few leaves make picking a breeze. One of the slowest dark colored tomatoes to crack. A staple in the garden and on the plate.

What are the pros? tasty, fleshy, good size
What are the cons? none
In Oregon our tomatoes have to contend with the rain. This year while many others were cracking this one did not. The flavor is tasty, they are very fleshy with not a lot of seed and were great for both canning and slicing.

These are beautiful and have a wonderful, rich flavor. The texture is very smooth. It's one of my favorite tomatoes. They produce very well and rarely crack!

This tomato really grew well for me in Northern California and although ripening didn't happen until late August it was worth the wait. The flavor was rich and complex and it did have sort of a chocolate balsamic taste. I don't like to eat tomatoes by themselves but this one was an exception. I kept wanting more! The plants yeild really well with plenty of sun. I even like this more than my black cherry tomatoes which were very yummy in their own right.
