The Russians Are Coming!

A Georgian Tomato Vendor, 1910, Library of Congress


We’ve been extremely pleased with our tomato varieties from Russia.

This year we are including a trio of our favorites:  Black Krim , Paul Robeson, and the (inappropriately named) Japanese Black Trifele.

We’ve found the Russian varieties are especially flavorful.  Farmer J is a big fan of the prolific Black Krim.  And last year, every Paul Robeson was cherished for its complex flavor.

The Japanese Black Trifele is newcomer to TomatoTown and we look forward to the pear-shaped black fruits this variety promises.

    I want some of those Japanese Black Trifeles. I didn’t get that one. The one I wanted the worst that I didn’t get was the Berkeley Tie Die.
