The first pear shaped tomato in the Indigo series produces strong plants absolutely crowded with 3 to 4 cm, bi-coloiured sweet-flavoured fruits. Starting off yellow, the fruits slowly develop attractive purple-black shoulders at maturity. This new exclusive release from Oregon State University’s high flavonoid breeding programme produces huge yields of heavily-packed branches of fruits, packed full of health-giving anthocyanins.

Coverseeds only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, eg a window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. Around time of last frost, set seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
