TOMATO – Indigo Rose

(15 seeds)

$4.20

(14 customer reviews)

Unusual, attractive, and so tasty

Charmingly named Indigo Rose Tomatoes are the size and shape of plums with a sin that's as deep an indigo as the darkest of these fruits. Slice them open to see the rose and olive-green hearts that add to the colour fest! Black tomatoes like these give an extra nutritional boost of antioxidants that comes from the dark pigment in the skin. Expect and get intense flavour along with the remarkable colouring. A little slower to ripen than red tomatoes, these beauties are still worth a little extra wait.

How to Sow

Tomatoes are best sown in trays about 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow seeds about 5mm deep and keep the soil temperature to about 20 celcius until germination. Once the plants have grown their second leaves the seedlings can be transplanted into larger individual pots. Keep the tomato seedlings in a warm sunny position and maintain moisture levels. When planting out, position the plants so that soil covers the entire stem up to the first leaves. This will increase root development and ensure a healthy strong plant. Plants should be placed in full sun and rich soil.

How to Harvest

Tomatoes ripened on the vine will be ready once they show their mature colour. The fruits can also be squeezed and should yield slightly when ripe. If frost occurs and temperatures drop late in the season all tomatoes can be picked. Tomatoes that do not ripen on the vine can be ripened indoors by being placed in a warm place out or direct sun.
