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:

I finally got to taste a Paul Robeson and wow! Outstanding! The flavour is smoky like a black tomato should Be, a little sweet and very very savoury. I started from seed and the seedling survived going from cold to sudden heat while I was hardening off very well where many others perished. The plant is strong and is producing a lot of these beautiful tomatoes. I Can't wait for more! The first was earlier than I expected for a 90 day tomato. I cannot recommend this tomato higher. Truly outstanding.

What are the pros? good flavor

What are the cons? had early blight

Review:

It has good flavor. Some are more than a pound. Caught early blight together with the cherry tomato, while the rest of my tomato are fine. Good for sauces. It started with few big fruits and more smaller fruits at the end of its cycle.

Review:

So here it is: The Paul Robeson tomato is EVERYTHING I was told it is, and more!! By far, the most delicious tomato I've ever had the pleasure to eat. Rich, almost smokey flavor, with nearly a citrus tang. It SCREAMS tomato flavor! Almost a non-existent, thin skin, and as juicy as all get-out. It dripped through my beard and down my chin to my neck. I was awash in Jersey Tomato heaven, and didn't bother to wipe. I stood in my garden and ate the first two that have ripened, and I felt like Andy Dufresne, arms stretched skyward, in complete satisfaction and gardening victory. I certainly apologise for the lack of pictures, but those babies never made it out of the garden. Maybe I can restrain myself tomorrow, and photograph the first sandwich of the season, complete with Hellmann's mayonaise and white bread, seasoned with Jane's Crazy Mixed-up salt..

What are the pros? good taste

What are the cons? Plants seem very disease prone

Review:

This is the second year growing them. They just don't produce enough and the plants are not hardy. I have been growing tomatoes for about 15 years. I won't grow these again.

Review:

I am part of that cult mentioned in the description. Damn, is this tomato amazing. If other people sing praises to their black beauties, purple cherokees or brandywines, that's just fine, but this tomato can knock even the most beloved heirlooms out of the park. With the hot Texas summer, it's much slower than other varieties in almost all regards (germination, growth, fruiting, ripening), but absolutely well worth the wait. I think I read somewhere that this guy does better with slightly cooler temps (by the time it is ready to start fruiting in the late summer, it often gets into the 100-110s during the day where I live, which definitely delays ripening.) If I plant in March (around the last frost date), I'll get green fruits by late July, but they won't ripen until a month later. Once this guy gets going, you'll get progressively larger and larger fruits. My record is 1.2lb. Worth noting that this variety is somewhat prone to cat facing and splitting in extreme environments.
