Black Bear – This is a medium to large purple beefsteak from Russia. It was once thought to be a renamed version of a variety called Negrityonok. Black Bear is a much larger tomato, so it is also felt that these two varieties are not the same. I do agree with the various reviews I found on it. It is an excellent tomato with a taste that is full and complex and quite satisfying. It is meaty and juicy and highly productive here in zone 6a, It will be on my grow list every year from now on.
