Indigo Rose is one of the darkest tomatoes bred so far and is exceptionally high in anthocyanins (which is an important antioxidant). In the early stages of fruit development, Indigo Rose develops a dark purple pigment on the parts of the skin exposed to direct sunlight.
This tomato is green when unripe, purple-red when ripe. It is a smaller fruit measuring about 1-2 oz, with an excellent flavor with slight 'plum-like' overtones. Developed by Jim Myers at Oregon State University using traditional plant breeding techniques.
