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? Beautiful, Easy to Grow

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

Gorgeous tomatoes! This was my first year growing these. They put up with a lot of crazy weather, from a cold, wet and windy spring, to very dry heat, and everything in between. My tomatoes started out with dark purple on top (the sunny side) and a yellow-green on the bottom (shady side). When the yellow-green turned a deep orange, they were ready to pick. Tasty and beautiful. Loved these tomatoes! I will be planting them again next year.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Doesn't like heat

Review:

I will not be growing this variety again. I am no expert gardener but considering all my other varieties are doing wonderful I think this one must need a cooler climate. I am up to 3 of these plants in different stages of growth, with different soils and sun locations with no good results. The only thing I can come up with is the heat. The little fruit I did get was beautiful and as far as flavor ....well it was a tomato. If you live in the mid-west try varieties that like the heat. Had wonderful luck with the Bumblebee cherries and beef steak varieties like Solar Flare and German Pink. Of course I can't leave out the Black Brandywine but it too suffers in this heat but if you can shelter it from the evening sun it can do well.

Love how these tomato plants grow up tall and productive. The tomatoes are almost black on top red on bottom. The plants are quite disease resistant.

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.
