Indigo Apple

About Indigo Apple

Indigo Apple is an extraordinary tomato. An eye catcher, to say the least. Related to the now famed OSU Blue Fruit tomato. Indeterminate plants produce beautiful pendant clusters of 3-4 oz., tomatoes deep purple to black colors (caused by high levels of anthocyanin…a naturally occurring anti-oxidant found in blueberries.) The gradual color changes appearing in the fruit as it ripens is interesting: fruit begins green with purple/black colors starting at the crown and spreading around fruit alongside mahogany and red colors. Tomatoes are fully ripe when soft to the touch. Because of its appearance, good sweet/tart flavors and long shelf life, Indigo Apple has proven to be a good market tomato. A good slicer since it is not too juicy. Resists sun-scald. Disease tolerant.
