As an indeterminate variety, they need support for their vines and are susceptible to cracking if not watered consistently. With proper care, including regular watering, full sun, and staking or caging for support, gardeners can successfully grow Black Krim tomatoes.
  2. What is the best use for Black Krim tomatoes? Black Krim tomatoes are known for their unique flavor profile, which includes a smoky, slightly sweet taste with mild acidity. They are excellent for slicing and adding to salads, sandwiches, or burgers due to their large size and juicy texture. These tomatoes are also great for juicing or using in cooking to add a rich, deep flavor to dishes.
  3. What is the difference between Black Krim and Cherokee Purple tomatoes? While both Black Krim and Cherokee Purple are heirloom tomatoes with a similar dark coloration, there are notable differences. Black Krim tomatoes typically have a darker, almost black skin with a greenish shoulder and are known for their smoky flavor. Cherokee Purple, on the other hand, has a deep, dusky purple color with a sweet, rich taste. The texture and size may also vary, with Black Krim often being slightly larger and more irregular in shape.

They are known for their unique color, which ranges from dark red to almost black, and their rich, smoky flavor.
