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? 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

What are the pros? The best tasting tomato

What are the cons? Sometimes smaller fruit

Review:

Loved the taste of these tomatoes, they were a medium sized tomato with an occasional large one, I used 5 gallon buckets for containers and they did great, didn't grow ridiculously tall, maybe 6ft, and averaged 6-8 tomatoes per plant. Pink Brandywines have always been my favorites but this is now my new fav.

What are the pros? Very Productive

What are the cons? Grows uncontrollably large

Review:

I only recently started gardening last year when we moved into a house with the outside space, and lighting (which can be difficult to find in the middle of the city) to set up a raised bed. I ordered this tomato because I wanted interesting colors in my garden, and it is at the moment my favorite tomato. Last time I couldn't contain myself and picked a few large green tomatoes from one of these plants in order to try out a recipe I found for Fried Green Tomatoes. It was shocking how great this tomato tasted, even while green. Maybe it's because it was the first kind I grew, or simply because they grew so well, i have decided to plant them again this year.
