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? 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.

Amazing tomato

EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

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.

What are the cons? Slow to ripen

Review:

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.

What are the pros? Taste, Gel, Heartiness

What are the cons? low to medium yields

Review:

Everytime I enter my garden my eyes gravitate towards these guys, waiting patiently for the golden hue to appear. Good bread and high quality bacon combined with PRobeson will produce the best BLT you've ever had. The gel on PR makes you want to suck it out as soon as you make the first transverse-plane slice. Just awesome, grow this, you will not regret it. Being a natural skeptic I was expecting to be dissappointed by these tomatoes, but I was wrong, way wrong. These guys do not dissappoint. Pros: flavor, color, size, minimal cracking/catfacing Cons: med to low yields (so grow lots of plants to have a good supply).

What are the pros? best taste of all varieties

What are the cons? none at this time

Review:

Another great season with Paul Robesson, my third in a row. Sold out at rareseeds.com, I was fortunate enough to find packets of this not-so-well kept secret on the shelves at Comstock Ferre in Wethersfield. It is happy and sad at the same time, more and more people are finding out how awesome Paul Robesson is, but this makes the limited seeds more sought after. The first to form grown alongside Pantano Romanesco, Kellogg's Breakfast, Blue Beauty and Cour di Bue. A little longer to mature and ripen than all the others but well worth the wait! Compared to other purples I have tried in the past such as Black Krim and Cherokee Purple this one is the clear winner in terms of taste. Also unlike Black Krim and Cherokee Purple, Paul Robesson has no thick core at all, just an even amount of flesh to gel throughout. The tomatoes will reach a decent size, very similar to that of a standard beef steak variety. Baker Creek if you are listening, please increase seed production for this one!
