Beautiful Purple Tomato!

wow, i must be a little behind on my tomato news… i just found out about a gorgeous purple tomato, “indigo rose,” on Your Organic Gardening blog. i hardly finished reading the post before i googled it and found the seed at Johnny’s Selected Seed, and ordered some. i’ll be starting lots to give to friends and family.

Editor’s Note: That is one of the most beautiful tomatoes I’ve ever seen. It almost looks like a piece of candy!

    Stunning color! I’ll have to check the veggie greenhouse and see if the MGs are growing this one. If not, will it be for sale at the North Stonington plant sale?

    hi, herb doc! sorry it took me so long to get back to you on this. yes, there is indigo rose at the veggie greenhouse, and hence, the east farm festival plant sale. we didn’t grow these for the north stonington garden club sale, however. (if you have no luck at the east farm sale, let me know. i grew extra for giving away purposes)
