Another wonderful indigo tomato in the indigo series
This variety produces an abundance of “cherry tomatoes” about 2.5 cm in diameter which turn indigo in the sun under the action of anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants. The leaves are shaped to let sunlight in. Our personal opinion on the indigo tomatoes is that they look fabulous on a plate or in a salad and taste mild.
