Solanum lycopersicum

Our Black Russian tomato seeds give growers access to a distinct tomato variety known for its rich heritage from Eastern Europe.

When grown, these seeds produce medium to large tomatoes with a unique dark reddish-brown colour, almost appearing black. They are characterized by their rich, smoky flavour which is both sweet and slightly tart, distinguishing them from more common tomato types.

In Australia, Black Russian tomatoes are hardy and can adapt to various conditions. While they thrive best in warmer zones with ample sunlight, they can also be cultivated in cooler areas with the right care. These plants have a strong resistance to several common tomato pests and diseases.

Culinarily, the Black Russian tomatoes are versatile. Their deep flavour enhances salads, sandwiches, and sauces, adding both colour and taste. From a nutritional standpoint, they are a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as important minerals.

For the best results, these seeds should be planted in nutrient-rich, well-draining soil. A spot that receives 6-8 hours of sunlight daily is preferable. As they grow, some support may be needed due to the weight of the fruit, so consider staking or caging. Consistent watering is key, but it's essential to avoid waterlogging the soil.
