SOLANUM LYCOPERSICUM

PACKET CONTAINS 40 SEEDS

The Black Russian is well known for its tasty mix of sweet and tart, followed by spicy and smoky undertones. The flavour intensifies when the tomatoes are dried, making them especially tasty in recipes calling for sun-dried tomatoes. As far as tomato plants go, the Black Russian is of the later-ripening variety, indeterminate and regular-leafed. Requires a regular watering routine to avoid splitting before harvest. Matures to a dark mahogany red.
