Tomato – Indigo Cherry Drops

Purple Cherry tomato on Indeterminate plants

Tomato Description

An improvement on Indigo Rose, this purple cherry tomato was bred at Oregon State University by Dr Jim Myers. Its colour is derived from the parents which include wild tomatoes from Peru or the Galapagos Islands.

Its a prolific cropper with up to 1000 30gram fruit in ideal circumstances (obviously not true in the UK but its a target to aim for). The fruit have a small point on them (similar to Garden Pearl) but the colour makes them different. Best grown in the greenhouse.
