The Tomato Pole Black Krim. 'Lycopersicon Lycopersicum', is an early, rich flavored old heirloom from the Crimean peninsula of Russia. Black Krim sets well in the heat and is a heavy producer. It is a "novelty" that does not sacrifice taste. Black Krim produces good sized, black, beefsteak-sized tomatoes with a rich, earthy, almost smoky flavor. This variety will set well in the heat but will also set well in other adverse conditions. It is the most reliable of the black tomatoes. Black Krim is an intermediate tomato which means they continue to grow indefinitely until frost. Tomatoes are generally started inside. They may also be seeded outside after the last average frost date. In warm winter/hot summer areas, tomatoes can be planted in early fall for winter harvest. Pole Tomatoes prefer well drained soil that is high in organic matter. Tomatoes need at least 1 inch of water a week. Soak to depth of 6 to 10 inches when watering. They need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Prune the intermediate tomatoes in order to keep a single stem.
