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.
