Black Krim tomato

[English] plural Black Krim tomatoes

This medium-sized, 10-15 cm (4-6") indeterminate heirloom beef tomato plant with regular or potato leaves has a high, mid season, yield of dark brownish-purple, thin-skinned fruit with heavy green shoulders and reddish-green flesh with green jelly around the seeds. It has been described as "odd looking" but with a good smoky, meaty, salt flavour. It is named after the Crimean (Krim) Peninsula on the Ukrainian Black Sea coast. It requires a hot summer to ripen to full flavour and colour.
