Black Russian Tomato Its a Heritage plant or Heirloom!
Tomato 'Black Russian' - Heritage Solanum lycopersicum L. Half-hardy Annual Cordon. These medium sized black tomatoes grow on compact plants bearing plenty of dark mahogany-brown fruits, with a delicious blend of sugar and acid. Tomato 'Black Russian' is an old variety with a rich, complex flavour that has to be tasted to be believed. This cordon variety is well suited to the indoor or outdoor cultivation. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 50cm (20"). Companion planting: Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basil, chives or mint to deter aphids and other pests. Hi Gardening Friends here is a great Heritage tomato or Heirloom tomato that you should try in your garden this year. I am going to plant it in my garden also growing to sell in my greenhouse to my gardening customers.
