Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic Black Krim Tomato Seeds
Lycopersicon esculentum 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."
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.
