Indigo Rose Heirloom Tomato Seeds Black/Purple RARE Non GMO Gardening
Indigo Rose is said to be the HEALTHIEST TOMATO IN THE WORLD and the first high-anthocyanin tomato commercially available anywhere in the world. The high amount of anthocyanin (a naturally occurring pigment that has been shown to fight disease in humans) creates quite a vibrant indigo, Indigo Rose has beautiful eye-catching hues of deep purple where sunshine hits to red/orange where a leaf or stem shields an area from the sun. Inside, the flesh reveals the same red tone with a superbly balanced multi-faceted tomatoey flavor. Indigo Rose is a mid-late season variety that ripens a little slow but is worth the wait. The indeterminate plants have an open habit and are very heavy yielders. Very high in antioxidants. The saladette sized fruits are excellent in salads or snacking. Fruit is from tennis ball down to ping pong ball size, has a nice fruity flavor and is quite variable. When sliced it looks just like a plum with its deep red flesh.
The dark pigments responsible for the purplish tones are called anthocyanins, a type of phytonutrient, or plant compound, hailed for its potential disease-fighting benefits. Studies suggest anthocyanins may help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. Some evidence indicates these purple pigments may protect our brain as we age. 75-80 days
