Tomato ‘Black Krim’

£1.50

Pre-dating the Russian Revolution of 1917 this heirloom variety originates from the Crimean Peninsula colloquially known as the Isle of Krim, located on the Black Sea coast. Heavy cropping, this variety deserves the term ‘beefsteak’ as the fruits are both large and truly very ‘meaty’, with juicy firm flesh. Starting off green, the fruits mature to a brown-red colour with a darker top. Fruits average 4″ (10 cm) in diameter but can be much larger. As a result, as the trusses develop additional support with canes or string may be needed. For best yields stop at 5th truss if growing under protection – which is recommended – the 3rd truss if growing outside. Grow as a cordon (pinching out side shoots) Spacing: 30-48 inches apart

Price per plant in 9cm pot
