Indigo Blue Berries Tomato

$399

The Indigo Blue Berries Tomato is an open-pollinated, cherry-type, indeterminate tomato variety. Boasting beautiful hues of the deepest purple that almost looks black and dark red, these fruits average 1 to 2 ounces. Typically developing their darkest pigments on the sun-exposed side, Indigo Blue Berries Tomato has a flavor that balances the sweet and fruit with the acidity to create a sweet, tangy, and sharp taste. For best texture and flavor, harvest when the colors have deepened and the fruit is soft. Growers favor this variety for its extended shelf life, resistance to cracking, and disease tolerance. A great variety for market gardeners. Solanum lycopersicum. 75 days to maturity

Growing Information

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be "stepped-up" to 4" pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
