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!

What are the pros? Plants were rigorous

What are the cons? Lower yielding and tangy taste

Review:

I've grown several tomatoes from Brad Gates, and the plants always seem to perform marvelously, as did the Indigo Apple's. That said, the flavor is not great. Not very sweet at all - they leaned heavily towards tangy. They are beautiful, but wouldn't grow again.

What are the pros? produces like crazy, early

What are the cons? taste is just ok

Review:

I don't normally review things, and although there are a few tomatoes that I like better such as tigerella, green zebra,sunrise bumble bee, and sweet carneros pink, I feel I need to review this one because it's performance for me seems to be other than the norm.Up here in MT, we have a very short growing season. We have trouble getting things to ripen before frost and although most people on here seem to have had trouble getting this one to ripen, I experienced the opposite. Indigo apple has been over the last couple of years been the first to germinate, the first to ripen, and the last to stop producing. Apparently this is it's ideal climate. The taste isn't as good as some others, and it seems to be a little prone to blossom-end rot, but I will always grow it because of it's earliness and productivity here.

Review:

This was my first year growing Indigo Apple, and honestly, being what I thought was a novelty tomato, I was not expecting much but "a pretty face". I couldn't have been more wrong. I waited, as so many have advised, a very long 3 days after I thought it might be ripe. The orange red skin kept deepening until finally today, salt shaker in hand, I sliced it open. It was thin skinned, meaty with delicious complex tomato flavour, nice acid/sweet balance. I didn't need the salt at all. Bonus: the plant is loaded with fruit! Along with my standbys each year, I always grow half a dozen or so tomatoes I have never tried. This is definitely a keeper! I say all this after tasting the first off the vine, and maybe I should reserve judgement until I've tasted more, but I don't think I'll be disappointed.

What are the pros? Great flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

These tomatoes are delicious. However you have to wait for them to fully ripen before picking/eating them. It's all about patience with this tomato. Picking these and eating them before they're fully ripe is like is eating undercooked chicken and nobody wants any of that.

What are the pros? Flavorful, beautiful, easy!

What are the cons? Slow ripening,

Review:

Many say the flavor is weak but you MUST be patient with ripening them! When the bottom of the fruit is red, they are ready! Pick when it's dry. These have a superb flavor, spicy, gourmet type that's amazing fresh, dried, or canned. Great for salsas, or Italian cooking!
