90 days. This famous tomato has a cult following among seed collectors and tomato connoisseurs who simply cannot get enough of this variety’s distinctive, sweet, and smoky flavor. 7 to 10 oz fruit is a red-brick color with few seeds and meaty flesh. Paul Robeson was an American opera singer, actor, linguist, and advocate for equal rights, especially in regard to African Americans and colonized peoples. Robeson was one of the politically active American performers who landed on Senator Joseph McCarthy’s infamous blacklist. This Russian variety was lovingly named in Robeson’s honor.
