Details

Indigo Rose is stunningly jet black! As the tomatoes ripen, the undersides turn from green to a rosy red. This tomato is exceptionally high in anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are powerful anti-oxidants. In the early stages of fruit development, Indigo Rose develops a dark purple pigment in its skin where exposed to direct sunlight. Green when unripe, purple-red when ripe, the 1-2.5 oz., cocktail-sized tomatoes have a good flavor with 'plummy' overtones. Developed by Jim Myers at Oregon State University using traditional plant breeding techniques.
