Tomato – Black Russian

Black Russian tomatoes have a distinctive black appearance and full bodied flavour. 

Sow 6mm deep; Plant spacing at 40-60cm apart; Germination period between 6-12 days; Soil temperatures between 16˚C and 35˚C; Harvest time approx. 8-17 weeks.

These tomato varieties, like most heirloom tomatoes, are of the indeterminate type.  This means they will continue to grow a main stem until it is killed by frost. They are best supported with stakes or else will sprawl across the garden. Tomatoes need a long growing season and are best started indoors in seed trays 6 to 8 weeks before planting out. They require full sun, well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter. Tomatoes perform best with consistent watering.
