Item details

Lycopersicon esculentum.

Russian heirloom imported by SSE and offered to members in 1996. Made available commercially by SSE as part of the Russian Collection in 1998. Described by one SSE member as “the ugliest, most delicious tomato I’ve ever grown.” Good yields of brownish-red slightly flattened globes weighing up to 14 ounces. Rich full flavor, great for slicing and canning. Indeterminate. About 75-85 days to maturity after transplanting.

25 seeds per packet.

We recommend growing Black from Tula tomatoes in full sun. They do not require a pollinator in order to produce fruit. Planting and care instructions are included with each purchase.

We aren't like other seed sellers on Etsy. They all do the same thing: they order a bulk bag of seed from a seed company, break it down into smaller packets, and sell it to you. (How do I know? I've messaged them and asked.) Bulk packets of seed are often cheap, so they can easily roll in the profits. Most of them even post the photo from the seed catalog. You as the buyer have no clue where the seed was actually grown (fyi, most commercial tomatoes for seed are grown in China and Southeast Asia), how new or old the seed is, how it has been stored, or if anyone has check to see if it will still grow. Kind of defeats the purpose of Etsy being handmade...

I actually raise my own seed. I do all the work, by hand, from the initial seed that is planted in spring, through the fruiting process, all the way through seed harvest, and carefully count the seeds by hand for your order. You may notice that these seeds haven't had the small hairs polished off or they might be a little darker than what you would buy from Burpee's or Totally Tomatoes. I do it the natural way, with no fancy equipment or bleaching chemicals to strip away the fruit pulp. I store them properly, perform germination tests every 6 months in accordance with the rules set by the Federal Seed Act and the AOSA seed testing standards.

Although we are not certified organic because our operation occurs at a residence rather than a large scale farm (per WI state law), we follow the same practices used by organic farmers on both our stock plants for sale and our own garden vegetables.

Try us. I'm confident you will be pleased and grow some of the best tomatoes ever.
