- Chyornyi Slon
Small (though fused fruits can reach 10+ oz.), spheroid, dark (burnt umber) fruits with delicious,
fairly sweet flavor. Indeterminate, potato leaf vines are huge and very productive from 80 days.
An heirloom variety from Russia, Чёрный слон translates to “Black Elephant”. Seed source was
Åke Truedsson of Sweden.
