The black krim tomato was a delicious addition to my garden in 2020. Often weiging more than 8 oz, these giants were the BEST for slicing up for a sandwich or salad- maintaining shape and a wonderful texture. Their perfect tomato-ey flavor held it's own, never getting lost or muted. Quick to sprout, but slow to ripen and not as productive as other tomato plants. About half of the seeds made it from sprout to maturity- I'm uncertain if this was due to the seeds or my lack of expertise. The plants that made it were amazing and hardy. I took cuttings for more plants, and they did very well. What I wish I had known before planting these : the tomatoes are epicly large and heavy and planting/spacing needs extra consideration for sturdy support. At four feet tall and with branching vines that were over six feet long, these guys took over! Which would have been okay, except that bugs, birds and squirrels REALLY loved nibbling on them.
These dark purple and terracotta colored tomatoes quickly became my wifes favorite tomato because of their very sweet and juicy flavor. We harvested from late August until mid October and still had blossoms until the weather turned. 4 plants were more than enough to keep us and our neighbors happy during the season and we'll plant a few of them again next spring.
