I was really disappointed with the Black Krim seed this year. Most of the plants never germinated. I've purchased these previously and not had a problem. Perhaps it was a bad lot. Will try again next year

Black Krim Pole tomatoes not what I had hoped

I have been disappointed with the Black Krim pole tomatoes: The tomatoes resemble the more commercial Celebrity in shape and color -- not the 'dark purple-black' fruits described in the catalog. Their flavor is adequate, but not exceptional and their texture seems somewhat 'mealy'. I will not be planting them again.

These did great in our garden last summer. Zero cracking, lots of fruit and grew late in the season. Zone 9 . Tastes amazing!
