Appearance and Taste
When properly cultivated, they produce plants with medium to large, slightly flattened fruits that can weigh up to 1 pound or more. The tomatoes feature a dark reddish-purple colour, often with green shoulders when fully ripe. They are celebrated for their tender, juicy flesh and sweet, smoky, and slightly salty flavour, making them a gourmet choice for various culinary uses.
Germination and Growth
Black Krim tomato seeds typically germinate within 6 to 12 days when provided with adequate warmth, ideally between 70°F and 80°F. To ensure a successful harvest, start the seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost, and transplant the seedlings outdoors when the soil has warmed and all danger of frost has passed. Black Krim tomato plants are indeterminate, meaning they continue to grow and produce fruit until killed by frost, with a typical maturation period of 70 to 90 days from transplanting.
