Details

This strange tomato bears bright orange fruits with prominent dark purple shoulders and smudges. The purple coloration is the result of the anthocyanin pigment in the skin, which becomes more prominent with light exposure and temperature fluctuations. The fruits are 4-12 ounces and have a sweet and mild slightly fruity flavor.
