‘Black Russian’ is an open-pollinated heirloom from Crimea that has taken the world by storm to become a firm garden and table favourite. Making the most of a short season, the dark skin absorbs the heat, transforming it into sugars for superior flavour. Diggers sourced the original seed of this charcoal-fleshed fruit and gave it to Seed Savers to share with the rest of the world. Perfect for salads, it fruits in 11 weeks from transplant.
