Tomato Indigo Rose
Tomato ‘Indigo Rose’
One of the most eye-catching tomatoes we’ve grown, ‘Indigo Rose’ boasts 8-10” long stems that are loaded with glossy black fruit with green undersides. Fruit holds very well on the stem, and the long trusses are excellent for flower arranging. Taste is good though not intense, and what may be lacking in flavor is made up for in the vase.
Plant type: annual
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 75 days
Plant spacing: 24”
Pinch: not necessary
Approx seeds per packet: 15
How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 8-10 weeks before last frost, keeping the soil temperature close to 80° F to aid germination. Once seeds have sprouted, indoor temperature should be kept near 60° F. Transplant out after all danger of frost has passed and soil is thoroughly warmed. Provide staking or tomato cages.
Harvest after all of the fruit has developed on a cluster, but before they completely develop their mature color, since that’s when they begin to loosen from the stems. Remove all of the leaves, as they will wilt. Expect a vase life of 4-5 days.
