History * Russian origin. * First introduced in S * Russian origin. * First introduced in SSE 2008 Yearbook by Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois (IL LO N), who obtained seeds from [ Reinhard Kraft], Neukirchen, Germany '' ''. * Reinhard Kraft received seeds from Andrey Baranovski of Minsk, Belarus with a translated name that he felt was racially discriminatory. As it appeared to be a great tomato, Mr. Kraft chose a nice neutral name for it - 'Black Bear' - and shared seeds under this new name. * The original Russian name for this tomato was [[Negrityonok]]. However, [[Negrityonok]] is a much smaller tomato compared to what [ Reinhard Kraft], Neukirchen, Germany '' '' observed in his growouts. It is obvious that just environmental growing conditions could not be responsible for such a huge difference in fruit sizes, therefore it makes sense to consider [[Black Bear]] tomato a different strain. [[Black Bear]] tomato a different strain.
