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.

What are the pros? Taste, taste and taste

What are the cons? No dislikes whatsoever

Review:

I see what all the hype is about now. Excellent flavor, texture and appearance. The flavor is unique; acidic and sweet; vaguely salty and like other's have said, smokey. The flavor is rich and complex. I will always and forever have these in my garden. To say that this tomato is better than or as good as Brandywine is a misnomer because this is like comparing apples to oranges. Brandywine is just as complex as Robeson but the flavors are very different. As different as Green Zebra is from Golden Dixie. Time of picking is crucial to this variety. If picked a day or two too early, then you'll have an ordinary, good tomato. If you let the fruit become dead ripe then you will experience the magnificent complexity that is Paul Robeson. You'll have to experiment with picking them at different stages until you find that magical perfection period. You'll find that the trouble you go through in order to find that sweet spot is WELL worth the trouble. Check the Robeson's at least twice daily.

Review:

I'm a novice gardener, only in my second ever summer garden. But I grew these last year and was in love with the meaty, umami flavor of these maters. Easily the best I've ever tasted (not that I'm a connoisseur, but I don't eat grocery store maters). Growing again this year and these have been my earliest except for some cherry tomatoes.

What are the pros? sweet and smokey and dense

Review:

We started our tomatoes late last year but kept our one remaining plant indoors. It produced no fruit but we kept it more or less as a houseplant. This year it has grown 3 feet in a month and is flowering. I hope we can get some fruit off "Roger" as he is now over a year old but extremely healthy and towers over this year's crop.

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.
