90 days. This famous tomato has almost a cult following among seed collectors and tomato connoisseurs, who simply cannot get enough of this variety’s amazing flavor that is so distinctive, sweet, and smoky. 7 to 10-oz fruit is a red-brick color. Named in honor of the famous black opera singer, star of King Solomon’s Mines, 1937. Paul Robeson, an American, was also a Russian Equal Rights Advocate for Blacks. This Russian variety was lovingly named in his honor. We are proud to offer such a wonderful variety

Review:

I bought these about 6 years ago and grew them just fine. I lost my seeds during a move and they got left in a freezing northern Minnesota garage for 2 years. Not exactly how you should treat seeds. As a test I took the mistreated 6 year old seeds and planted them. They grew!!! Shocking! The germination rate in spite of the abuse was about 50%. The plants that made it grew perfectly with no effects from the abuse I heaped on them. The fruits where beautiful and delicious. I struggle getting my head wrapped around the color, I get all freaked out at first thinking they are bad but once you come to terms with the color they are delicious and a pleasure to eat and grow. I plunk them in the ground and other than an occasional watering I pay little mind to them until they start producing. We are under construction so I little time for pruning suckers and weeding and they produce with no maintenance.

Review:

This tomato variety is my new FAVORITE tomato. The savory smokey taste is fantastic. The tomatoes themselves are larger then I expected which has been great. It has the perfect balance of meat and juice and has a flavor that is very unique. A must to try and taste. We will be growing this one every year from now on.

Review:

I was dissappointed with this one. I expected it to compete with the carbon, but found it had a blander flavor. Good texture, love the color, plant was prolific. Not a bad tomato, just not as good as the Carbon.

Review:

The Paul Robeson tomatoes were among our best producers this year. We have a short growing season but hot summers and the tomatoes were among the 1st to ripen. Plants are large. Tomatoes are great for sauces as well as eaten fresh.

What are the pros? Delicious smooth and beautiful

Review:

Delicious juicy fruit. They're not terribly productive, but this year the fruit were nice and big due to an extended spring. Heat sensitive, on hot years the fruit are smaller but earlier. Although plants are medium sized they still do better caged.
