Tomato Blue Ambrosia

A dark/gold cherry tomato on an Indeterminate plant


From the 2019 seed swap, we are growing this for the first time in 2020. As we get more details, this page will be updated. However, according to the web its a tasty, prolific cultivar producing golden cherry fruit that turn violet in strong sunlight. This of course makes it difficult to predict in the UK because of the lack of “strong sunlight”. However, we shall see.

Its an open pollinated variety, a cross between Bosque Blue & Ambrosia Gold (neither of which we have grown) and, whilst it is reputedly stable, it hasn’t been around for very long. We’ve found it in a few places on the web and have included one in our list. We’ve never bought seeds from this place so cannot comment upon their reliability.

As you can see from the pictures, the plant had a strong blue tinge (which would sometimes lead on to suspect it had been a bit cold but other varieties treated in exactly the same way were fine) and, they were very dark/black coloured, even in our not very intense sunlight. They tasted fine but the colour didn’t survive cooking (the flesh is red, only the skin is black). They are different and fun to grow.
