Black Krim Grafted
"Krim" is Russian for Crimea, which is a peninsula in the Ukraine. This rare heirloom tomato yields 3-4" dark-red (mahogany-colored) slightly maroon, beefsteak tomatoes. Green gel around seeds. Fantastic, intense, slightly barbequey taste. Perfect choice for slicing, salads and cooking. Plant has an indeterminate growth habit (needs a tall tomato cage). A good sub, if sold out, is Cherokee Purple or Black Bear.
Biodynamic-certified young tomato plant. Pre-order now for pick up at Love Apple Farms Spring Plant Sale.
Grafted plants produce more fruit with fewer problems."Grafted" means: A disease-resistant hybrid tomato plant is the rootstock upon which the grafted heirloom is spliced, making for an extra-strong, super high-yielding tomato plant.
