Black Russian Tomato Seeds

This tomato is arguably the most well known black tomato available and this inderterminate (vine) variety produces delicious medium sized charcoal/red fruit.  A beautiful addition to any garden with its striking fruit.

Staking will be required and avoid watering leaves directly to prevent disease. For best results grow seedlings in punnets or trays and plant out after last frost.

Health & Culinary Notes
