Black Krim Tomato


Black Krim Tomato is an heirloom variety that originated in Crimea, a peninsula in the Black Sea. Dark, maroon fruits with superb flavor and meaty texture. Indeterminate, medium-sized, beefsteak type. Solanum lycopersicum. 70 days to maturity.


Black Krim Tomato is an heirloom, open-pollinated tomato variety that originated in Crimea, a peninsula in the Black Sea. This variety is noted for its remarkable flavor that has a hint of smokiness with a meaty texture. Fruits have a beautiful contrast with a dark-maroon body and dark green shoulders. Fruits will become darker as they are exposed to more sunlight later in the growing season. Black Krim Tomato is an indeterminate, medium-sized, beefsteak variety that will continue producing throughout the entire warm growing season. This is a great slicing variety for hamburgers, wraps and tomato sandwiches. It also is a great tomato for caprese salads with fresh mozzarella and basil leaves.


Growing Information

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be "stepped-up" to 4" pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

Did not germinate

This is my second pack of tomato seeds that did not germinate from Hoss seeds. Everything I buy always germinates at an amazing percent. I was so looking forward to tasting these tomatoes. So disappointed.

We are sorry to hear this, please reach out to for assistance! Our customer support team will be more than happy to help you in any way.

Amazing plants and fruit

Wow! These tomato plants were super strong and thriving all season. Some went 10 feet tall with the Florida weave and added extensions. Some tomatoes were grapefruit size and all were delicious. I grew 9 different tomatoes last year. Only three are being planted this year. Black Krem was number one of my top three. ( North Atlanta area 7B)

Best tasting tomato in my garden this year! Just started a few more seeds for going into fall since they were the favorite in my house, and my neighbor's houses, too! Hoping for a true or late first frost. (7b - Georgia)
