Indigo Apple Tomato

         
 
9 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
75 days, indeterminate--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? taste, color

What are the cons? none

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.

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.

What are the pros? Flavor and production

What are the cons? None

Review:

I started these from seed indoors around the beginning of March. Transplanting in May went off without a hitch. I don't think they took much longer to start turning than my other varieties (Roma, Brandywine, Rutgers, cherry, Black Krim, and Greenskin). They do stay small and compact, and I have not seen any bugs on these at all. I don't use anything in my garden for pest prevention on my tomatoes. I found my Indigo to have a strong sweetness that is only very slightly tart. The tartness really comes out when you cook them, just like any tomato, but I think these are a little stronger. A lot of mine are small enough to leave them whole, and I add them to other sliced veggies in a pan on the grill. I couldn't believe how sweet they were while biting into one out in the garden. I prefer to let them ripen on the plants. I'm a big fan of these now and I'll be keeping the seeds for next year. After tasting the tartness that came out in these, we're going to try them sun-dried.

What are the pros? Plant loaded with fruit

What are the cons? Not very tasty

Review:

Watery taste, not very good. Plants are loaded, but the old saying goes, we have good news and bad news. The bad, the food taste like crap, good news, theres plenty of it.

What are the pros? Favorite Tomato

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This quickly became our favorite tomato and the best seller at our market stand. We were giving one away in every bag of produce (some people dont know what to think about a blue tomato) and the very next week everyone wanted more. Beautiful color, crack resistant, sit on the counter perfectly for 1-2 weeks, and latest producer into the fall. The flavor is wonderful and its the perfect blend of a meaty and juicy tomato. This is our new specialty. We are a biodynamic farm and had no major pest or blight problems with this one. We will start some indoors sooner than the rest as they do ripen slower but cant wait to grow it again plus more this year!
