75 days. Immature fruits show deep purple, almost black coloration, which is caused by high anthocyanin (an anti-oxidant). The 2- to 4-ounce, cherry-type fruit turn red when ripe, have a good, complex yet sweet tomato flavor. A descendant of the famed OSU Blue Fruit tomato. The pendant clusters of immature black fruit present a striking appearance in the garden! Resists sun-scald and cracking, lasting long into cool autumn weather when others have quit. Shows disease tolerance and great shelf-life. A classic is born!

Review:

These are delicious cherry tomatoes with a hint of sweetness. Amazing producers, long shelf life, and disease resistant. Everyone who tried these from our garden fell in love and requested more for the coming years. Very easy to grow also.

Review:

Just to make things clear I am in central Ontario near Toronto, but for some reason it lets me choose only US states :( dear admin there is a whole world of gardeners out there! I plant this gem every season along with 25 other tomatoes and it's my favorite, I love strong acidic tomatoes especially darker ones.I start it from seed in April set it out by mid June and we enjoy them sometimes till October.It will always have a spot in my garden.

Review:

I am writing from Ontario, but I cannot select different state so sorry it says Alaska up there :) someone should fix that plz This is one of my favorites when it comes to taste, it's easy to grow and looks amazing, it's not very productive compared to my best ones like nyagous but it's ok when I compare it to beefstakes that didn't do well this year. I am planting this one third year in a row and it will always have a place in my garden.

Review:

I'm a biodynamic grower. We had little rain this year. Indigo apple taste sweet and looks beautiful. Perfect tomato as far as taste, texture, dependability, and flavor. I usually grow 4 tomato varieties a year. Ive been searching for my favorites to grow. Ive never had a favorite variety (been growing for 5 years) until this year when I tried indigo apple and solar flare. Even did well against a tree line on the southeast side of my beds, perhaps only a little slower to ripen.

Distinctive pretty fruit

EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? Distinctive, unusual fruit

What are the cons? Takes forever to ripen

Review:

My Indigo Apples grew easily from seed, and were one of the first plants to begin bearing fruit. However, they were also one of the very last to begin ripening (110 days). Their unusual color always draws many questions & comments from other gardens in my community garden. The fruit size range from slightly bigger than a ping pong ball all the way up to about a baseball, with some fluting on the larger specimens. The color is fantastic, a rich dark purple wherever sunlight has hit the fruit, and a perfect, dark pink, meaty interior. Based on the fruit's coloring, I was expecting a far lusher flavor. The flavor is good, very nice; and since it's not very juicy, it's a good slicer for sandwiches. A touch of salt makes the flavor more distinctive. I am going to try a few of these in my dehydrator to see how they work as 'sundried' tomatoes. The yield so far has been small (1-2/week), but seems to be bearing more fruit as the end of summer approaches.
