Black from Tula tomatoes come from Russia. These are dark purple with almost black shoulders that have the same coloring through the flesh. As with all Russian Heirloom varieties, these have a robust flavor! They take around 80 days to mature from transplant and will do fine in northern climates. Will be a hit at your dinner table as well as the farmers market table. This is a rare Heirloom, Non-GMO variety that you can only get when you buy tomato seeds online. Happy growing!!!
