Black Krim Tomato
After planting Black Krim tomato seeds, you will be harvesting beefsteak tomatoes within 80 days of setting the seedlings into the garden. These so called black tomatoes are actually dark red and brown at maturity.
This is one of the best tasting garden tomatoes you can grow. Many tomato growers claim Black Krim as a personal favorite. It is best eaten fresh as it is too soft to use when canning tomato sauce.
The fruit is born on indeterminate vines up to 8 feet tall. The productive vines begin to bear early and continue cranking out delicious tomatoes into fall.
Avoid waiting until the fruit is dead ripe before harvesting it. It may become too soft if you do.
Cracking at the stem end can be a problem with this heritage tomato. This is largely a result of applying too much water and applying it unevenly.
