Reportedly the blackest tomato and with the highest anthocyanin antioxidants, Tomato ‘Indigo Rose’ bears medium-size fruits of around 70-80g. Flavour is best when the tomatoes are left to fully ripen on the vine beyond their purple black stage to dull purple-brown. Best grown under glass. Height: 1.8m (6’). Spread: 50cm (20”).

Our grafted tomatoes offer greater vigour and increased resistance to soil-borne diseases and pests.

 

Companion planting: Try growing tomatoes with French marigolds to deter whitefly, and basilchives or mint to deter aphids and other pests.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
