History

  • Russian origin. It is likely the same variety as Chernomor, as "Chernomor" can be translated to "Black Sea Man" from Russian.
  • SSE members list it as both regular leaf and potato leaf. The true Black Sea Man should be potato leaf. Fruit size also varies from grower to grower.
  • SSE TOMATO 19.
