Sosulka Chernaya is a long, dark paste tomato from Ukraine. It originated as an accidental cross in a field of red tomatoes, and was found and stabilized by farmer Aleksey Kulik. It was first made available in the United States by Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (our seed source) under the translated name "Black Icicle," but we are using the original Ukrainian name. This tomato is not the most productive, but it more than makes up for it in flavor. A great canning tomato, Sosulka Chernaya also makes a rich, dark tomato sauce.
