90 days. This famous tomato has almost a cult following among seed collectors and tomato connoisseurs. They simply cannot get enough of this variety's amazing flavor that is so distinctive, sweet and smokey. 7-10 oz. fruit are a black-brick color. Named in honor of the famous opera singer star of 'King Solomon's Mines', 1937. Paul Robeson was an equal rights advocate who stood up the the infamous McCarthy committee in the 1950's and had his career nearly destroyed as a result. He was idolized in Russia as well as all around the world. This Russian heirloom was lovingly named in his honor. We are proud to offer such a wonderful variety.

Review:

This year we have been bombarded with a colder and than normal summer. The part of my garden that I have the Paul R. tomato is the wettest and it has done well there, it did lose some bottom leaves as to be expected but out of all the varieties, this one ripened first, Even prior to the Early Girl and 4th of July tomatoes i grew. I am happy with this one.

What are the pros? size, flavor

What are the cons? prone to splitting after rain

Review:

These are the most flavorful tomatoes I've ever grown! We had one recently that weighed in at 1.5 pounds and it was perfection. Pretty hardy little suckers and stood up to heavy winds and rain but tended to split and need to be picked early due to that. They also withstood a fungal infection that plagued my cherry tomatoes right next to them. Be careful, though...if you don't keep them in check, they can exceed 7 feet. Completely worth the climb, though!

What are the pros? Size, color, taste

What are the cons? Sun damage

Review:

When they are on, wow, great rich taste and color. Dry weather and blight took out some leaves and the sun damaged the fruit quite easily, but they were laded and there was plenty of tomato. Just not marketable.

What are the pros? Best tomato I've tasted to dat

What are the cons? largish stem area to cut out

Review:

First year growing all heirloom tomatoes so I searched the catalog for varieties where reviewers raved about the flavor. I picked Paul Robeson and struck gold. These grew to a nice big size and were nicely prolific. These are very soft, you'll be tempted to eat them with a spoon but they're firm enough to make the best, dang BLTs you've ever dreamed of. I'm planning to grow them again next year.

What are the pros? Very good flavor

What are the cons? a bit too watery

Review:

First time grown. The plants grew well and produced well. Medium large tomato with very good flavor. Not as firm as I had hoped with a lot of seed pulp making for a "runny" sliced tomato
