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? 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.

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Low yields

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.

What are the pros? Earliest maturity this year.

What are the cons? None.

Review:

We started 15 varieties/375 tomatoes under grow lights around April 1, 2015. It is our first tomato to ripen in this now wet, cloudy year. We had three weeks of drought, then the monsoon season hit. It is very delicious.

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Low production

Review:

This year was a rather wet year and everything has been delayed. This one had a low production rate, but the flavor was amazing. The first one that was ripe weighed over a pound and was as big as my hand. I was not expecting that big of a tomato. It was a pleasant surprise.

I have grown this variety for a number of years. It does not have a big yield, but the flavor of the crop is so incredible that keep growing it. My very favorite "black" tomato.
