Yellow-gold cherry tomatoes start out as amethyst purple before they ripen to a glowing golden with a hint of purple remaining at their tops. They have a delicious sweet yet acid flavor and are visually stunning. This variety started out as a selection out of Indigo Blue Berries, and was bred by Brad Gates. Indeterminate. 75 days.
Excellent sweet flavor and incredibly large yields are the hallmarks of this delightful cherry tomato bred by Dr. Jim Myers at Oregon State University. As part of the Indigo series, these one-inch fruits are purple/black due to high anthocyanin levels, with rosy undersides and deep red flesh. Indeterminate. 65 days.
This is an amazing cherry tomato with very high levels of anthocyanin that show up as beautiful deep purple skin. Unripe fruit are amethyst colored, but ripen to almost black with a bit of brick red on the bottom. They have a delicious, plum-like flavor and are quite easy to grow. Their appearance is striking enough to turn heads at farmers' markets or become the centerpiece of a home garden. Indeterminate 75 days.
Beautiful 6 to 8 oz. beefsteak tomatoes are uniquely colored, beginning as a stunning true blue where sunlight strikes the skin atop a bottom side of green. As they ripen fully, the purple deepens and eventually turns more reddish. That is when they develop their excellent flavor and are ready to harvest. Expect a heavy production of meaty tomatoes that are resistant to cracking and hold well on the vine until you are ready to pick them. Indeterminate. 80 days.
Early ripening and gorgeous dark fruit make this variety special. Heavy sets of unripe fruit show lots of purple due to the high anthocyanin level (the same powerful antioxidant found in blueberries). The stunning color is brought on by sunlight, and will eventually turn almost black. This variation of Indigo Rose is earlier and earns its name due to an especially good sweet tomato flavor. Indeterminate 70 days.
This is the original "blue" tomato released in 2012 by Dr. Jim Myers at Oregon State University. He used conventional breeding methods to get its dramatic purple color by drawing on a substance found in wild tomatoes from Peru and the Galapagos Islands. The substance is called anthocyanin, and it is a powerful antioxidant that protects us against disease and early ageing. Indigo Rose develops a dark purple skin wherever the fruit is exposed to direct sun, but it needs to ripen fully to develop good flavors. It is not ripe until the fruit softens, the bottom turns from green to red, and the flesh is deep red. Expect an abundance of these very beautiful 1 to 2 oz. deep purple fruits with rosy undersides and deep, brick red flesh. Indeterminate. 75 days.
Breakthrough flavor is the hallmark of this new cherry tomato and it is a perfect choice for those who love indigo colors. Midnight Snack begins fruiting with red, and then changes to deep indigo with exposure to sunshine. Naturally occurring purple anthocyanin pigments create the dramatic color change. Midnight Snack was recognized with an all All America Selections award by multiple judges, and many noted the improved flavor. If you want to encourage your kids to garden, this is one that will stimulate their thought process and more importantly their appetites for healthy food. Be sure and stake the indeterminate vines which are very vigorous. 65-70 days
