Black Krim Organic Tomato Seeds

(P) Pkt of 30 seeds
Item #52756-PK-P1


Smoky charcoal color, rich flavor

Days to Maturity: 80 from transplant


An extraordinary beefsteak that has been grown and treasured for generations in its native Russia, Black Krim is as packed with flavor as it is with dark, rich color. These large, distinctive tomatoes are absolute tops for meaty, true tomato tang.

Reaching 8 to 12 ounces on average, this fruit arises on open-pollinated plants that keep bearing all season (indeterminate). Give them lots of support—the stems need help holding up their bounty of big, heavy tomatoes.

Black Krim was discovered by a Swede visiting the Crimea region of Russia, and is also known as Black Crimea. It is renowned throughout Europe for its distinctive appearance and flavor, and we are delighted to make it available to Park gardeners. It is a good reliable grower as well as a gourmet taste treat.

Sweet and delicious, these tomatoes are also borne generously, so you can count on enjoying them all season. Plan on sowing every seed in the packet—no matter how many Black Krim plants you grow, you'll wish you had more.

Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart.

Great tomato!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I love Cherokee Purple, but its tendency to crack is depressing. Black Krim tastes a lot like it, but with a more durable skin & reliable shape. It performs great in our Mediterranean climate!
