Germ 7-14 days / Indeterminate
Part of our Indigo series, these extraordinary blue almost black tomatoes will be some of the most unique varieties you have ever grown. They were developed with traditional selection and breeding techniques at the University of Oregon, beginning in the 1960's from crossing cultivated tomatoes and wild species from Chili and the Galapagos islands. Young fruits when exposed to sunlight have indigo-purple skin from the pigment Anthocyanin, naturally occurring in blueberries, which is a powerful and beneficial antioxidant. The fruits are ready to harvest when the skin turns bright rosy red on the bottom, shoulders are indigo shaded and the fruit is soft to the touch.
Produces an avalanche of cherry size, amethyst colored clusters. A nice balanced tomato flavor with a perfect amount of sweetness and juiciness.
