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 is the first year I grew the Paul Roebson tomatoes and they are now by far my favorite. We had a slow start in the growing season so I was worried about production, but my 3 plants didn't let me down. I grew them in my trug and put large tomato cages around them. They grew to be 8 ft tall. I had to use a ladder to harvest the tomatoes. I cut the plants down today and felt guilty as they were still green and filled with many green tomatoes and numerous flowers.

Review:

Very productive and very hardy grower. I am not sure why some of the reviews rate the production so low. These out produced every one of the other heirlooms that I grew. Very flavorful and my friends absolutely brag about them too ... lucky for them that I had plenty of leftovers and still harvesting. There is no doubt that these will be a repeat in my garden for many years.

Review:

In a damp year and a somewhat disease-ridden garden (too small, and rotating is inadequate for the # of tomatoes I plant), the Paul Robeson has held up pretty well. Not a huge producer but my favorite of the last three or four years. Smokey, sweet, still some acid. And so gorgeous sliced! Will splurge for more seeds next year and skip some other heirlooms. Our fruit are more lobed (heirloom-shaped) than the ones in the photo, but not to the extreme of an Ananas Noire. Fruit are medium sized, come off the vine easily, and ripen more evenly than the ananas noire as well.

What are the pros? flavor

What are the cons? seems to crack a little

Review:

I thought I'd branch out this year by adding a Paul Robeson and I'm glad I did. Paul Robeson was weeks ahead of the Brandywines and has a superb flavor. We had historic amounts of rain, and the plant got diseases, looks awful with black, curled leaves, and it is still pumping out tomatoes. Until the diseases hit, I was getting fruits around 10-12 oz, and since then, maybe 8-9 oz or so. There has been a steady, if not prolific supply of tomatoes, and I eagerly await each one. They sometimes crack a little, but overall are properly shaped, juicy and absolutely delicious. I doubt I'll ever NOT grow these again.

Review:

This tomato is a show stopper. Some of the tomato's got very large, most around the size of a baseball. If I had a tomato plant like this when I was younger, I prolly would have loved tomato's at a much younger age. An egg sandwich with a couple slices of these tomato's is the best breakfast I've had all summer.
