Blue Berries Tomato

75 days. Indeterminate. Here’s a new, small cherry variety from Brad Gates, Wild Boar Farms. Very dark purple color, which means it’s super-rich in anthocyanins. Unripe, the fruits are a glowing amethyst purple. At maturity they turn deep red where the fruit was shaded; the areas that received intense sunshine are a purple so deep it’s almost black! The flavor is intensely fruity, and sugar-sweet! Plants are very productive, yielding all season in elongated clusters that look so beautiful. A new favorite here at Baker Creek!

What are the pros? Flavor and appearance

What are the cons? No complaint

Review:

These are really neat little tomatoes. I love how the shaded spots are a different color; when you remove the stem, a lot of them look like they have a little flower design on the top where they were shaded by the leaves. Depending on when you pick them, the flavor is anything from tart (when the shaded parts are yellowish) to quite sweet (when the shaded parts are red). They ripened when my other tomatoes ripened, so I don't think they were late. I am excited to grow these again.

What are the pros? Started well from seed

What are the cons? Not consistent color

Review:

I started these small tomatoes and the larger White Queen variety this year. Somehow half of the plants producing the small cherry size tomatoes are growing golden yellow fruit. The others are turning red with blue where the sun hit. Not sure how that happened since cross pollination in my garden shouldn't effect the fruit on this plant just future seeds. You will certainly want to prune your plants to allow more sunlight to hit the fruit or they will only have a hint of blue on the side nearest sunlight. I won't grow these again.

What are the pros? taste, look, size

What are the cons? slower to ripen

Review:

These beauties do take time to ripen, but if left on the vine until reddish-pink on the bottom they are super sweet and very beautiful. Taste like a cross between a dark cherry and a tomato. Great addition to an assortment of other cherries tomatoes to sell at market.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, hard to ripen

What are the cons? Will not ripen

Review:

We have been waiting and waiting for these tomatoes to ripen but they will not. They are purple on top and partway down the sides. The bottoms are green and will not turn purple or red. They are hard and just not ripening over time. Not sure what is wrong.

What are the pros? fun color, prolific

What are the cons? bland

Review:

This tomato is very prolific and generates a lot of interest from people who, like me, have never seen a blue tomato. The vines are very sturdy, and the tiny tomatoes are gorgeous on the vine. The flavor was a little bland to me. Also, I'm not sure if others experienced this but out of six plants, two ripened red, two ripened yellow, and the other two ripened to pink. It takes me the longest to pick these as it's difficult to tell which ones are actually ripe.
