In the early stages of fruit development, Indigo Rose develops a dark purple pigment in its skin where exposed to direct sunlight. The 1-2 oz., cocktail-sized tomatoes have good flavor with ‘plummy’ overtones. Unlike any tomato that we have seen! The high amount of anthocyanin (a naturally occurring pigment that has been shown to fight disease in humans) creates quite a vibrant indigo, almost blue skin on the 2 inch, round fruit. The purple coloring occurs on the portion of the fruit that is exposed to light, while the shaded portion starts out green and turns deep red when mature. Inside, the flesh reveals the same rouge tone with a superbly balanced, multi-faceted tomato-ey flavor. The indeterminate plants have an open habit and are very vigorous producers.
75-80 days to maturity, full sun.
