Indigo Apple Tomato

$3.50

Indigo Apple Tomato | Ecologically grown
Solanum lycopersicum | Annual | Open Pollinated | Heirloom

Beautiful and early variety with fruits that turn shiny black in the sun. Rich in the powerful antioxidant anthocyanin, these large, stunning fruits offer mild, aromatic tomato flavor improved by full ripening from shiny black to matte purple. Resists cracking and sunscald, with some resistance to late blight. Bred by Brad Gates using an original cross made by PKS Heirlooms in Copemish, MI. Indeterminate. 4-6 oz

Planting tip: Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before planting date. Reduce water and nitrogen intake when hardening off. Staking required for indeterminate type.

Harvesting tip: For best taste harvest when the tomato is fully ripe and has expressed all its full color. One can also harvest when the tomato is green and has expressed its first blush; in this case, let tomato ripen off-vine at a temperature above 21°C.

Storage tip: Store at 12-21°C with a relative humidity of 95%. Tomato may damage at a temperature of 10°C.
