Blueberries Tomato (Organic, 85 Days)

5 reviews

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.

20 seeds

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after last frost. 

Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

Fascinating fruit

The blueberries tomatoes grew very well, with heavy loads of fruit per plant. Their flavor is quite strong, and not sweet, more savory and acidic, but I would still grow them again because the tomatoes are Gorgeous! Near black on top and red underneath, most of them have a very prominent green star on the dark area, where the stem was. Very unusual! Shopping with Pinetree is always a pleasure. Delivery was delayed because of Covid, but I expected that, and the company stayed in good communication about my order.

I have never seen so many fruit on one plant.

This tomato is an amazing producer. i have literally never seen so many tomatoes on one bush. left my sweet 100s in the dust. the flavor is just okay though. its good but not memorable but still what is memorable is seeing a tomato bush sagging to the ground under the weight of hundreds of fruit.

Gorgeous tomatoes, healthy plants!

These have done very well on my patio in a large pot. They are just as blue as you see in the pictures and terrific as a novelty and to mix with other colors in salads. I'm giving 4 rather than 5 stars because while the flavor is very good, it doesn't hold a candle to the other two cherry varieties I grew this year (sun-gold and tomatoberry). But if you have room for multiple varieties of tomato, I do recommend this for the awesome color!

Delicious and beautiful

In the midst of an Arizona heat wave, these are producing well for me. I started them last winter and now am picking so many clusters of ripe fruit, there are plenty to give to my friends. Everyone is amazed at the flavor and beauty of these.
