Indigo Blue Beauty Tomato

80 days. When these 6- to 8-ounce, beefsteak-type tomatoes are still ripening, the green fruits sport gorgeous indigo-blue shoulders. As they ripen, the shoulders turn deep, deep purple-blue, while the undersides turns deep rosy red. Gorgeous! That deep blue color means high levels of anioxidant anthocyanins. The fruits, borne on prolific indeterminate vines, are crack- and sunburn-resistant. In fact, they turn deeper colors when exposed to full sunlight. Best of all? They're sweetly delicious! (OP.)

  • Information
  • Absolutely nothing compares to eating a sun-warmed, homegrown Tomato straight off the vine. This garden mainstay is easily grown and most rewarding. Start seed in a warm, bright, well-ventilated area six to eight weeks before setting out. Transplant out after the last spring frost date. To encourage stockiness, sink seedlings deeper into the well-enriched soil than you grew them - soil should cover the lowest layer of leaves. Position stakes, cages or supports at that time to avoid disturbing the plants later on. Keep soil evenly moist and well-fertilized. Once harvested, store Tomatoes at room temperature, as anything below 50°F destroys the enzyme that gives Tomatoes their flavor. When a variety is said to have determinate vines, it means that the vines top out and all of the fruit ripens at once. When a variety is said to have indeterminate vines, it means that the vines keep growing and bearing fruit until a killing frost. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 2 years.
