Paul Robeson Tomato

In Stock
Paul Robeson Certified Naturally Grown Seed

80 days, indeterminate — The regular leaf plants of 'Paul Robeson' produce large (up to twenty ounce) beeksteak-type fruits that are maroon-black shouldered, sweet, very juicy and flavorful. Under certain conditions, we have observed cracking so watering should be consistent and not in excess.

This variety is an old Russian variety named after the African-American actor, singer and civil rights activist, Paul Robeson (1898-1976). It was because of his activism and unyielding position during the McCarthy-era, he became a hero in the Soviet Union.

Initially introduced to American seed savers in the mid-1990s by Marina Danilenko, a pioneering private seed seller from Moscow during the Perestroika-era. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Amazing! Lives up to the hype
After a lot of research and drooling over photos I decided to pursue the Paul Robeson in my 2018 garden. From the start the plants were healthy and strong, and survived transplanting without a wilted leaf unlike some of my more finicky varieties. They set fruit early on and the fruit ripened quickly despite our season being very odd this year. The most important part: taste, did not disappoint. This is hands down one of the best tomatoes I've ever had if not number one. Rich, tangy, smoky, it's like a circus of flavor profiles. The plant set its first batch of fruit and the plant seemed to wither a bit, before setting another round of even more sizeable and beautiful fruits. Overall I have been very impressed with my gamble and I think I will retain the Paul Robeson in my tomato rotation! Thanks Victory!

Superb Flavor
I've grown these for two years now, and love them. They are very sweet. I like to cut one up and use it in Nongshim Ramen ... quick, easy, healthy dinner.
