Stock your garden with this eye-catching purple tomato, which develops its beautifully dusky pigment when exposed to direct sunlight. The purple skin boasts high levels of anthocyanins, disease-fighting compounds that help fight cancer, reduce inflammation, and slow the aging process. Inside, fruits offer tasty rouge-tone flesh. Tomatoes are ripe when skin turns from shiny blue-purple to dull purple-brown and the bottoms of the fruits turn from green to red.

Indigo Rose is open-pollinated, and it produces a heavy crop whether planted in pots or a traditional garden. Even though these are more compact than many other indeterminate tomatoes, plants do benefit from staking. Tuck one plant into a 20-inch or larger pot or half whiskey barrel. Plants are resistant to early blight.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Indigo Rose Tomato is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unique color but OK taste The color is very unique, a dark indigo fruit that turns reddish brown as it ripens. The fruit is about 1 inch sphere, with a thick skin and mild tomato taste. The plant is a prolific producer, resistant to drought, no leaf curl. Nice decorative fruit but would not grow because the flavor is OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful... strong and healthy plant. This is our first time growing this tomato and will continue to grow them in our garden. The plant yields a lot of fruit and the fruit is absolutely gorgeous and delicious. Thank you Bonnie plants and Home Depot for carrying this variety!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaf curl I bought this from home depot back in spring. The plant is still in its same height as purchased. Few tomatoes blossomed but they are way less than golf ball size. I water and feed regularly but no improvement. I don't won t purchase this plant again and I am experiencing same issue with red beefsteak regarding the size burped describes. Also the tomatoes keep falling off

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I absolutely loved these beauties last year!! Awesome sweet bursting in your mouth flavor, the beautiful colors and a very interesting Xmas tree looking plant!! I was so blown away with them, that this year I planted about a dozen each in two different locations in the Los Angeles area. But from the start I had problems, as the leaves started curling. None of the plants would grow to over 18-24", and the plants would die. I'm an experienced life long veggie/and big time tomato gardener, and I saw no presence of pests or diseases at all. I changed watering schedules, etc etc etc, but nothing helped the dying plants. I purchased more plants, but had the same experience. Frustrated I even went to various nurseries to purchase more, but had the same results. As a side note, I even saw that variety with curled leaves at the nurseries, so it wasn't my doing! I talked to nursery people and even a couple master gardeners at Bonnie, but they had no experience with the curling. Out of all the plants this year, only two grew to maturity. Sadly the tomatoes had none of the sweet bursting flavor I experienced last season, as they were rather tart and watery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Champion in novelty cultivar tomato category at the Canadian National Exhibition. 2015 won Judges choice and first place ribbon. Very unique looking tomato, even though "do not touch" signs all over the tables people could not resist to see if they were real! An absolute go to tomato, one that will never let you down. The taste is average but the secret is in the experience of knowing when they are ripe. You will just have to grow them and see for yourself, you will not be disappointed I promise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plants grow very well after getting transplanted. Leaf curl is sort of standard. Very heavy yield on relatively compact plants. Stake well, as the fruit load can bend the main stems. Pretty disease resistant.
