Black From Tula Certified Naturally Grown Seed

85 days, indeterminate — The plants have heavy, dense, regular leaf foliage that protect its fruit from sun scald, but at the same time, can contribute to disease issues. Be sure to give them a lot of space and keep them staked up to promote better air circulation and you will be rewarded with amazingly flavorful fruits.

Its fruits are brownish-red in color, flattened-globe shaped, weighing up to twenty ounces and flavors that have been described as sweet and rich to salty and smokey, depending on the climate and growing conditions in the particular location. Excellent for slicing and canning.

According to Dr. Carolyn Male on pages 62 and 63 of her book, "100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden," 'Black From Tula' originated in the Ukraine.[1] We still do not know the full story about why an heirloom tomato from the Ukraine is named after an industrial town in Russia. We do know that it was first introduced to American seed savers in 1996 by Marina Danilenko, a pioneering private seed seller from Moscow during the Perestroika-era.[2]

'Black From Tula' is in the SSE collection a SSE Tomato 2911. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
