Paul Robeson Tomato Seeds - Art Seed Packs

Get a start on your garden! These beautiful art seed packets are filled with high-quality, Certified Organic seeds and feature the commissioned works of contemporary artists around the United States.

A "black" type tomato with a distinctive smoky and sweet flavor, this heirloom consistently wins taste tests. 6-12 oz. fruits with dark green shoulders.

    There’s a lot worthy of honor in the story of Paul Robeson, a famous opera singer, linguist, and equal rights champion who nearly had his career destroyed for standing up to the infamous McCarthy committee in the 1950's. He was idolized and well respected in Russia for his musical genius, his political activism, his athletic accomplishments, and his civil rights leadership, and this tomato has quite a loyal following as well! It's as multi-faceted as he was: its deep flavor is like his renowned baritone voice, its broad shape akin to his robust physical stature, its powerful, outstanding flavor an echo of the man’s full-strength personality. For all of these reasons, the Russian tomato breeders who developed this variety named it in his honor.

    Art Seed Packets: Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards.
