Black Krim Tomatoes

These are definitely my favorite of all of the tomatoes that I’m growing. This indeterminate has been very prolific – I think I’ve picked every ripe fruit off of each plant. I waiting for the next round of tomatoes to ripen. They’re that good! A native of the former Soviet Union, this dark red (“black”), heirloom tomato has an intense flavor that puts others at a very distant second. It is so juicy!

I’m finding that the superior taste of of the Black Krim has spoiled me from really enjoying another tomato in my container garden, the beefsteak tomato. It’s large and delicious, but the taste of a beefsteak tomato, based on several personal taste tests, does not at all prepare me for the very vibrant taste of the Black Krim. There’s a world of difference! Black Krims are outstanding by themselves and in salads.

As with most of my fruit and vegetable plants, all of my tomatoes were started from seeds purchased in packets, and a few were propagated from tomato side shoots (or tomato suckers) from these seed-borne plants. For me, this is definitely the Summer of the Tomato!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE: The non-fruit parts of tomato plants are poisonous if ingested. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
