Black Krim Tomato Plant from Sweet Corn Organic Nursery

It’s time! No matter where you live, it’s probably warm enough to plant tomatoes. Here’s one of my favorite heirloom varieties. This indeterminate tomato (gardener-speak for, “Starts growing and doesn’t stop pushing out tomatoes until the frost slams in”) produces dark, beefy tomatoes that are nearly black inside and taste a little smoky. It’s the sweetest August treat.

May be available from a local nursery. If you can’t find it locally, this mail-order source is reasonably reliable.
