Description

This tomato has supreme shock value as well as a good sweet tomato flavour! The unripe green fruit becomes purple, brought on by sunlight, and will eventually turn almost a true black, caused by anthocyanins, antioxidants found in blueberries. This excellent sweet tomato, apparently a cross between Indigo Rose and a red cherry tomato, is early-ripening. It also shows disease tolerance and has a really good shelf-life. (Cordon)

Sowing Advice

Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant. May 2018 germ = 43%
