The Black Krim Tomato

Updated on March 3, 2011

www.TomatoGrowing.Info

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.

      John, I am not familiar with the Ontario Canada area, so I cannot recommend a local nursery for you. However I have posted some links above for some reputable online nurseries that will ship Black Krim tomato seeds and/or plants to your door. Many of these companies will ship the tomato plants and seeds for free if you spend a certain amount of money (usually about 25 dollars). I hope you find them, becuse they really are delicious and a joy to grow. Have fun in the garden!

      Ya Barkley, I just got my catalog from Gurney's nursery, and saw the Pink Cadillac tomato seeds in it. I added a packet to my order, and will be planting them this spring.

      The black krim tomato is my favorite tomato variety. I,ve tried a few other "black" varieties in the past, but the unique slightly salty flavor and the large size of the Black Krim has earned it a place in my garden year after year since I first found these unique seeds on Amazon a 4 years ago. I ordered this years seeds a few days ago, and should be getting my Amazon shipment soon. I like to get a jump start on my plants so around the 20th of March I start tomato seeds indoors. 8 weeks later when the weather warms up, and the danger of frost is gone I have some healthy looking plants ready to go into my garden. I can't wait till Spring!

      Last year I grew a few Cherokee Purple tomato plants, and they were delicious. I'm always looking for new varieties to try, and the Black Krim sounds like a good one. I can't wait til Spring!!!!
