As beautiful as its name would suggest, this purple-to-black tomato is a new release from Oregon State University. With high levels of free radical scavenging anthocyanins and a prolific nature we highly recommend this tomato be added to your list for 2014. The mild fresh flavor is perfect for salads or to slice with a bit of good cheese. The fruits are about the size of a very large cherry tomato, up to 2 inches diameter. Whereever the sun touches the fruits expect deep purple coloring. We were astounded by the number of tomatoes per plant. The Indigo Rose row in 2012 was literally a sea of purple fruits. Indeterminate.
