Noire de Crimée tomato

I tasted some Noire de Crimée tomatoes with BER, on 3 Aug 2019. They were good, but the taste was a lot milder and more normal than I would have expected from what others say about it and Black Krim. Maybe the shade from the neighboring plants lesseed the flavor.

There are ripe ones without BER.

Fruit size is about that of Matina and Moravsky Div. Edit: Because they were golfball-sized and round instead of large beefsteaks; they were probably a cross.

I prefer the stronger, smokier taste of the Paul Robeson tomato.

Here are five fruits that I harvested and saved seeds from (the taste was not much different than that of those with BER):

Here some of them are seeded (with some Big Boy F1 tomatoes):
