Black Krim Tomato
Solanum lycopersicum 'Black Krim'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
Twenty years ago who would want a tomato that turns dark? Today ’Black Krim’ is one of the most popular heirlooms, and is emblematic of a remarkable swing back to the varieties of the past. Coming from the Isle of Krim, off the Crimean coast in the Black Sea, it has become a favourite of gardeners and cooks, and there are even recipes that call for it specifically. Its fruits are large and very juicy. How dark they get depends on where it is grown: the hotter the climate the darker the fruit. In cooler areas the colour is a dark purple with green shoulders. And the taste -- ah, the taste -- is intense, full-bodied, with a satisfying hint of saltiness. The vines are indeterminate vines and must be staked or caged. 69-90 days.
