Winner - Unofficial Taste Test 2017!


Wispy-leafed, indeterminate plants are massive! Fruits come on later in the season and there are tons of them! Dark brown / muddy brick colored fruits have dark green shoulder staining which does not permeate into the meat. Nearly coreless, with very few seeds. Considered a paste tomato as they are very meaty this variety could easily double as a salad tomato.

 

What makes this variety stand out is its flavor - dark, deep and robust with a hint of sweetness. Flavor is further exaggerated when cooked. My new 'go to' sauce tomato. If you needed more convincing plants produce an obscence amount of fruits albeit late in the season - perfect for canning!

 

HISTORY: This variety is also known as 'Kubinskiy Pertsevidnyi Chornyi' and 'Kubinskiy Chornyi Peretz' in Russia. Interestingly, it is believed that its true heritage hails from Cuba; USSR and Cuba used to have very close relationships and many Soviet military-men served at Cuban Navy bases till mid 1990's with their families and brought different local seeds with them.

 

My seed came to me via Iva Graska of Slovenia who actually sent them to Bill Malin (aka SpudLeafWillie) and I inherited them upon his passing (August 2017).
