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 antioxidant found in blueberries.) The gradual color changes appearing in the fruit as it ripens are 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.
