I live in the Virginia Beach area and these tomatoes never disappoint. Very hardy.Beautiful large dark red and green tomatoes that are delicious. Makes a great presentation for caprese salad.

Black Krim Tomato

Plant arrived on time and very well packed in great condition. Very good root growth in pot so the transplant took with no shock to the plant. It’s been a week and it already has an inch of growth.

These plants arrived securely packaged and healthy looking. They are growing like crazy now and starting to flower (long growing season in Texas) now that our nights are much cooler and days getting that way. I can’t wait to eat these they are a new variety for me.

Super Tomatoes!

Ordered these and received them fast here in Florida. The seedlings looked great because of the fantastic packaging. Planted them about 1 month ago, and they are all now well over 4 feet tall. GrowJoy is the best!

Great customer service with Black Krim Tomato

I ordered about 10 different plant for my garden from these guys. There was a problem but they fixed it right away with good communication. I'm looking most forward to these tomatoes. They've only been in the ground a week so I'll update when I get my yields. So far they seem pretty hardy.

From Robert | June 28, 2015

Black Krim Tomato

Plant arrived a bit sad looking (the box was clearly labeled "this side up", but the post office put it on the porch upside down - not GrowJoy's fault...). The plant recovered nicely though. No flowers or tomatoes yet...

From Olga | May 26, 2015

Already flowering!

The Black Krim arrived in great condition, carefully packaged and produced its first flower just a few days after planting!

Looking good

I was a little disappointed when the plants first arrived, they were a lot smaller than I expected, but they seem to be doing much better. I am started to get some flowers, so hopefully I will have some nice tomatoes this year.
