   Rich Gorgeous Tomato, October 11, 2016  By Jill 
We grew one Black Krim bush in our back yard last season. It produced some of the best, tastiest tomatoes we've had yet. It has a mellow, meaty flavor that we liked best fresh, as it didn't impress us when we cooked it. It also added a rich color dimension to fresh salsa, as the flesh is dark burgundy. Be sure to plant early, as it produces all summer long. We planted a bit late, and it was the only plant that withstood the cold into some of autumn. Plenty of delicious fruit here!

   Black Krim A Favorite, October 11, 2016  By Micehlle 
I grew three plants - in Massachusetts - they did very well and produced quite a lot the end of August beginning of September. Large tomatoes with heirloom flavor that need nothing added to them! Black Krim are best served sliced with a little sea salt, or cut up with cucumbers and sweet onion as a salad!
