Tomato - Indigo Apple
Indigo Apple is a real beauty, with a high yield and early ripening. The fruit have a lot of purple which is brought on by the sunlight and will eventually turn almost a true black. This is caused by high anthocyanin leves. The fruit have a good, sweet flavour. To get the best ensure they ripen properly as they get lighter during ripening with only the part of the fruit that gets a lot of sun keeping their darker colour when they are ready for harves.t
Sow in pots from February onwards. Sow seeds on the surface, cover lightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Hold containers in warm conditions until shoots appear, which may take from 3-10 days. Move seedlings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. Pot on after first true leaves appear. At about the time of last frost, set out into grow bags. Do not allow the plants to get too cold.
