Brought back by popular demand! This is the variety that everybody was chasing years back. I've said it once and I'll say it again - you just can't get the same flavor profile in any other color tomato than you can in a black variety: deep, smokey, rich and complex are just a few of the adjectives used to describe these medium-sized, thin skinned beauties.

 

Plants are determinate, which means they stay compact. Fruit size will vary from the beginning of the season to the end, but average about baseball size. If you make your own sauce, make sure to include one of these. Like all other black varieties, the amount of intensity of natural sunlight that the plant receives will determine how dark the fruits mature to. Additionally, as with all black fruited tomatoes, they will produce much heavier in cooler climates which can mean early in the season and then again towards the end of summer.


HISTORY: Originates from Russia. Most likely the same variety (translated) as Chernomor.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
