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? 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.

What are the pros? Grew easily from seed

What are the cons? Took forever to ripen

Review:

Was one of the 1st seedlings that grew when I planted seeds this year. But although the tall, thin vines hung heavy with fruits, it was also one of the last to begin ripening. If you taste the fruits when pale red, the taste is tart; if you allow them to turn deeper red, the taste loses its tart edge, although I would not call the tomato "sweet". The skin is firm, with a juicy interior, and therefore the fruit feels like it almost "crunches" as it bursts between your teeth, which is kind of fun for a tomato. The vine itself is purple, which gives it a distinct look among the other vines in my garden bed, and has seemingly been more resistant to fungus than neighboring plants after an unusually wet spring/early summer. If I grew this again, I would start the seedling indoors a couple of weeks earlier than other plants.

What are the pros? Beautiful to look at

What are the cons? Taste was ok

Review:

This was very interesting. It was kind of thin and very tall. The little purple tomatoes truly look like berries and are so beautiful to look at. The taste was OK. They were on the sour side. Not sweet like the red or even the Michael Pollen. Probably wont plant again. All looks and no taste.

What are the pros? Lovely color, tasty

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are stunning! And unlike many tomatoes that are bred for their looks, they have a really robust flavor. Very productive, too.

What are the pros? Tasty

What are the cons? Garden Trollop

Review:

Plant away from other varieties. Every tomato near to this one is cross bred. Only the jersey paste tomato, Michael pollen, and yellow pear got away unscathed.
