This famous Russian tomato, named after the famous singer, has almost a cult following amongst tomato connoisseurs. Large, deepest mahogany, almost-black, solid-fleshed fruits dripping with juice, have a fabulous, strong and distinctive, sweet smoky flavour. This is the true form and is very rarely available.

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.
