Has anyone here ever grown, or had black russian tomatos before?
No, never heard of 'em. They don't taste like a combo of vodka and kahlua do they? :smile2:
Never heard of them either?oooh:
Hmmm.....did a bit of research, I never knew there were so many varieties of "black" tomatoes! :big_smile:
Some info: Black Russian tomatoes (heirloom) have a superb, complex taste.....must be tasted to be believed - dark mahogany brown, smooth fruit which tastes sweet, spicy, and slightly salty. Not to be confused with the Russian Black tomato, which is a beefsteak variety.
First I ever heard of black tomatoes, Russian or otherwise. I have heard of evergreen tomatoes, that stay green, even when they ripen. They aren't nearly as acid as regular tomatoes.
Very interestin,Thanks for the research on em Tanya . Ya can still learn a NEW thing all the time around here.
Never heard of em before. If anyone ever gets any, save some seed for me. I'd try them.
Will do. I don't have much of a spot for a garden, but they sound interesting, might have to try and grow some myself. However, when I did my Google search for "black russian tomatoes" I discovered that there are quite a few seeds you can order from different companies, for all types of black tomatoes.
Growing the Black Krims here.
Fourth or fifth year for them.
Nice sweet smoky taste.
Deep burgundy with greenish black shoulders.
Jerry, you need to get some Green Zebras.
Nice sweet tasting, great plain or sautéed.
This year, I have 1 chocolate, 1 black, 1 red, 1 green, 1 orange and 2 yellow tomato plants. Forgot to start the Romas until it was too late.
Next year, am going to have around 20-25 tomatoes.
This site has the seeds. They spell them russian black #163. All kinds of tomato and pepper seeds on this site.
