INDIGO BLUE BERRIES
A new and most unusual deep purple skinned cherry variety, ripening to almost black, with delectable juicy pink flesh and a delicious plum-like flavour, and also high levels of the antioxidant anthocyanin. Taste testers blissfully describe the flavour as sparkling. The green fruit quickly develop purple tops and crimson bottoms, ripening to a midnight black tone with deep, maroon-coloured bottoms.

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.
