Seed Swaps

Tomato 'unknown cross'     

Seeds from a swap. Labeled Black Krim, but is an unknown cross instead. I’m reclassifying this planting’s variety to just tomato, and am dropping the Black Krim moniker. This will avoid any confusion when people are using these logs to document Black Krim tomatoes.

This may be a cross from a Pineapple tomato. This plant produces large (nearly 1 lb) yellow tomatoes with a slight reddish streaking on the blossom end. The flavor is mild, but a good, tomatoey flavor. The fruits are pretty solid, meaty in consistency with few seeds. The plant is large, (about 5-6 ft) with numerous very large fruits on it.

I’ll save some seeds from it, but not sure it will grow back true to type. It is planted between and Amazon Chocolate and an Indigo Rose. .. no blossoms bagged, so seeds are of unknown status.
