Grafted Tomato Plant - The Black Tomato Indigo Rose

1 Review(s) with an average rating of:
5.0

A true superfood with extremely high levels of vitamins and antioxidants. Specially bred for extra nutrition, it contains the same antioxidants as blueberries. Ensure the fruit ripens completely before picking (past the fully black stage, when the skin becomes suffused with shades of indigo/rose), and enjoy it fresh, or even better, cooked. Smoky barbecue flavour. High disease resistance. (Cordon variety - one stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear, needs staking and tying in.) Supplied in a 10cm pot.

  • The fruit are exceptionally disease resistant and long-lasting
  • They boast a mouth-watering fresh tomato taste with unique plummy overtones
  • The flesh holds its structure when cooked – making it a must for salsas and sauces
  • It’s a GM free zone!- the result of years of careful breeding work
  • It’s remarkably easy to grow in a greenhouse or in a sunny spot outside
  • Grafted for superior performance and up to 75% heavier crops!

Where leaves shade the fruit, the skin will ripen to a deep rose, where the fruits are in full sun, the skin will turn its unique indigo black colour. Go on, give it a try!

The plants will perform well outdoors in most summers and can be planted out once the danger of frost has passed however they are particularly recommended for growing in a greenhouse where they will reach their full potential. Outdoors and in the greenhouse border plant 30cm (2ft) apart and provide a cane support. In the greenhouse, when the 10cm pot is well filled with roots, transfer the plant into a pot no smaller than 30cm (12") in diameter. The plants have a vigorous root system and are not suitable for growing in grow bags. The plants should not be allowed to dry out and will need feeding with a liquid tomato feed twice a week once the fruit start to set. In hot, sunny weather damp down the floor of the greenhouse to increase the humidity. Misting the plants with water will aid fruit setting. This is best carried out around midday, but do not spray the foliage under strong direct sunlight as scorching may occur or on cool, dull days.

Adequate support will be required from an early stage and the main stem should be tied in as the plants develop. The side shoots which appear at the leaf joints should be pinched out when they are about 2.5cm (1") in length. We recommend trimming the plants leaves to expose the fruit to the sun for the best flavour and darkest fruit. Grafted plants can produce 7-9 trusses in a greenhouse.

The fruit should be allowed to fully ripen on the plant and be picked as required. Take care not to pick the fruit too early as the skin turns black before the fruit has fully ripened, they are ready to pick once they 'give' when lightly squeezed. Please read here for more information

The tastiest, most delicious tomato. No sourness. No making you wince with the flavour being too sharp. Can't wait for next season to grow such lovely tomatoes. Flavoursome and loved by all who tasted them!
