It’s our first year planting the heirloom variety tomato, Black Krim. We’re excited! The one pictured is just starting to ripen and we’re curious how long it will be before it develops that lovely deep, dark crimson. We’ve had a couple of heavy rains lately, thus the tell-tale cracking. Fingers crossed, we hope this one survives.
This particular fruit is a big’un–easily 5 inches across and 4 from stem to stern. I’ve read that most Black Krim are medium-sized but this one is definitely a beast. It’s interesting to see how this tomato has sapped all the energy from its stem-mates. I wonder if those will develop after the big kahuna is picked.
Anyone with experience growing Black Krim? What other heirlooms do you grow? Love to hear about it!
