Recommeded in "Gardeners World" magazine Nov 07 Named for the Crimean peninsula in the Black Sea. Slightly flattened 4- 5" globes with dark greenish- black shoulders, turns almost black with enough heat and sun. Excellent full flavour. Indeterminate, 69- 90 days from transplant.
Sow in spring 1/16 inch deep. Germination takes around 6- 14 days at 65- 75F. Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 3 inch pots. Grow on under cooler conditions and when about 8 inches tall, either plant in their growing position in the greenhouse or gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions and plant out 18 inches apart in a warm and sunny spot in moist, fertile well drained soil and keep watered. Provide support and tie in regularly. Remove side shoots and restrict the plant to one main stem. In late summer remove the growing tip to hasten ripening.
Note that wherever the number of seeds is indicated in grams, there may be more or fewer seeds in the package because the seeds are not the same size and weight.
If indicated in grams, the number of seeds loses relevance and is only there to show the approximate number of seeds in the package.
For example "Price for pack of 50 (1g) seeds." so you are not buying the number of seeds but the weight.
