Tomato, Paul Robeson: Solanum lycopersicum: Annual, Indeterminate: This is a Russian heirloom, named for the famous opera singer and equal rights advocate. The flavor on these is unparalleled in any other tomato. They have a unique smokiness, with a great balance of acidity and sweetness, all contained in a 6-12 ounce red fruit. Another all around good tomato, great for slicing, saucing, canning etc. Plant 2-3ft apart (without a stake) or 1-2 ft apart with a stake.
