A rare old Russian variety with neat trusses of perfectly-formed, blemish-free, tennis-ball sized fruits. Possibly the prettiest of the 'black' tomatoes, the thick-fleshed fruits having a distinctive and delicious, salty-smoky flavour. (Cordon)
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into grow bags. Plants need staking and side-shoots removing.
