80 days. Open polinated Heirloom. Indeterm. A classic "Black" tomato with the full, rich, smoky flavor that black tomatoes are known for. Produces 12 to 16 oz. fruits that should be harvested when the shoulders are still green. They are perfectly ripe at this stage and just delicious. Not a top producer in our very hot climate, it does better further north. Paul Robeson produces better for us. From Krymsk on the Black Sea in Russia. Germinated at 84%.
|Lifecycle:||1 (0: N/A, 1: annual, 2: perennial, 3: biennial)|
|Soil:||Adaptable. Tomaoes need phosphorous, potasium, and calcium more than nitrogen. Bone meal is perfect. Excess nitrogen causes large plants with fewer, later fruits.|
|Propagation / Germination:||Start indoors 5 to 6 weeks before last frost. Keep soil lightly moist, not wet. 77 degrees is ideal, but anywhere from 60 to 85 degrees will work.|
|Water:||Water weekly if necessary. Tomatoes appreciate mulch, but wait until the soil has warmed and plants are growing rapidly.|
