This tomato has almost a cult following among seed collectors and tomato connoisseurs who simply cannot get enough of its amazing flavor. Beefsteaks about the size of tennis balls, are mostly round, but some are slightly flattened. Deep, rich coloration - dusky, dark-red, with dark-green shoulders, and red flesh which is so distinctive, sweet and smoky.


Originating from Siberia, it sets fruits at lower temperatures, making it an excellent choice for cooler growing regions.

HISTORY: This Russian variety was named in honor of the famous black opera singer star of King Solomon's Mines (1937). Paul Robeson was also a Russian Equal Rights Advocate for Blacks. His artistry was admired world-wide, especially in the Soviet Union.


Sold in a 3.5" pot.
