Black Krim ripens one block from the beach
The next season, I think I will grow more Black Krim and fewer Japanese Black Trifele. Both are Russian tomatoes, cold climate tolerant and perfect for a garden one block from the beach. Both have wonderful flavor, smokey and deep. But I like the larger tomatoes that you can get from Black Krim. The Japanese Black Trifele did ripen earlier, wonderful really when you are starved for home-grown tomatoes, and I did get an abundance of tomatoes per plant but the Japanese Black Trifele tomatoes are smaller.
