Organic Black Krim Tomato Seeds (75 days)

Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Indeterminate.  Regular leaf foliage.  First off this is a terrible photo, but I can't find the other ones I took.  Occasionally heirlooms will throw funny shapes and that is why I took this photo. 

Black Krim makes its way to us from the Isle of Krim in the Black Sea off the coast of the Crimean Peninsula. 

Black Krim produces beefsteak tomatoes that are 4' long by 5 1/2" wide.  Deeply mahogany colored, slighlty flattened with green gel coats. 

As for taste...I think Amy Goldman in her book The Heirloom Tomato says it best..."The flavor is exotic and musky; the fruit acid hits me in the roof of my mouth and tickles my tongue.  Others describe Black Krim as very intense, smoky or salty."

Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region .   TX

California Grown Heirloom Seed
Black Krim is on the cusp of being an early mid season variety.  It produces high yields and seems to have little problem with our cool nights.  No surprise since it is from the Black Sea region of Russia.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Tomatoes:

Most gardeners want to get the most out of these delicious heirloom tomatoes and therefore give them a head start on the growing season.  Start these vegetable seeds indoors in sterile potting mix being sure to keep the temperature above 70 degrees.  Some people prefer to use a grow pad but the top of the fridge has been known to be quite effective as well. 

Once the first true leaves appear on your tomato seedlings, transplant into 4" pots until you have completely hardened them off in the garden.  Hardening is a process of exposing the plants more and more to outside temperature until they are hardy enough to tollerat a complete outdoor move.  Generally speaking, by early summer heirloom tomatoes should be transplated into the garden.

Most heirloom varieties are quite productive and will greatly benefit from sturdy supports.  It may also be advisable to add blood and bone to the worked soil to help ensure healthy productive heirloom tomatoes.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Tomato Seeds:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
