Indigo Rose Blue Tomato, YES, IT'S BLUE AND IT TASTE GOOD. 75 days from transplanting
Yes, this is the extremely rare Indigo Rose BlueTomato, one of the rarest tomatoes we know of.
MSN.COM today stated: "According to the New York Daily News, There's a new tomato in town. While Indigo Rose might sound like the name of a band, it's actually the latest breed of tomato. What's so special about these new tomatoes? Well, for one thing, they're deep purple — and may be better for you."
"'Super Tomato' was bred specifically to contain high levels of antioxidants called anthocyanins that turn the tomatoes purple. Blueberries also contain anthocyanins, which, you guessed it, are responsible for their high level of antioxidants and purplish hue."
"Indigo Rose tomatoes are ready to be grown in home gardens and sold in supermarkets everywhere." (I think you can imagine the price!!) "You might be wondering, why go through all the trouble to breed a new tomato when blueberries already contain higher levels of the same antioxidants? The researchers explained that tomatoes are eaten extremely often in the US, almost on a daily basis per person. They also rank top five for most popular fresh vegetable, trailing potatoes, lettuce, and onions."
Wow, I guess that says it better than I could.
We have very few seeds available.
The flavor is sweet and rich, a firm juicy taste treat.
The very attractive fruit are perfect for salads or as a fresh taste treat, right from the vine. As they start to ripen on the vine the tops of the fruits are a vivid blue, which darkens. The more sun they receive, the more blue they become. Definitely a variety that won’t be missing from our garden. We believe you’ll feel the same way also after your first taste.
Most of the seeds and all the seedling we list are grown by us in our own organic garden. The seeds we sell are cleaned and saved by us, from our own organically grown plants. We don’t use pesticides or chemicals in gardening, everything is grown naturally, the way it was intended to be.
