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

What are the pros? size, juice -meat ratio, color

What are the cons? not planting enough

Review:

Grew this tomato in 2017 and have regretted not having it again. There are many Robeson seeds in Europe but none compare to Baker Creek's. Excellent old cultivar flavour. Not too large, and good meat-juice balance. Our aprox coordinates are 8?43'21.5"W 42? 13.58' N

Review:

Picked a few off the vine we'd missed in November and ripened in a brown bag! Had garden tomatoes for Thanksgiving in INDIANA...must've been beginners luck. Gave some to an older neighbor who proclaimed she hadn't had tomatoes this delicious since she was a child and would eat them like fruit. She doesn't eat tomatoes anymore because they have no flavor, but she loved these!

What are the pros? Tasty, early maturing

What are the cons? low yield, prone to stink bugs

Review:

I grew these in the 2018 season. The flavor was one the best I've ever had for a purple-brown type tomato - sweet, smokey, everything desired in a tomato. A big however is that the yields were very low and this variety seem to attract tons of stink bugs. We've had several wet summers in Upstate, NY and this has made made this type and my Black Krims prone to cracking so just be aware, these can crack. If it wasn't for the low yield and stink bugs, I'd probably grow again but alas I'm a container gardener and it's simply not worth the real estate. I'll stick to Black Krims only for now.

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.
