The Black Krim tomato derived it's name from it's place of origin, which is the Isle of Krim. The Isle of Krim is located in the Black Sea near the coast off the Caribbean peninsula in Russia. The Black Krim is a rare heirloom tomato variety.
These medium large (10-14 oz.) dark maroonish brown colored beefsteak tomatoes have a deliciously unique taste. The Black Krim naturally has a mild salty taste, and will not require any additional salting. This makes the Black Krim an ideal tomato for anyone who's diet forbids them from having salt.
The Black Krim is one of the more popular black tomato varieties found in home tomato gardens. These plants which produce an abundance of dark, delicious fruits can be successfully grown in containers, making them a perfect choice for aspiring tomato growers who have little or no garden space to work with.
Black Krim tomatoes are relatively easy to grow, but proper watering is critical. This species has very little resistance to splitting and cracking, a condition commonly caused by inconsistent watering patterns. Visit The Tomato Gardener for tips on how to care for tomato plants properly.
