I got these seeds from a neighbor -- I am posting this picture before full ripeness just because I am so curious! Eventually these plum tomatoes turn bright bright yellow but retaining that dark purple blush/highlight. I remember they have a very good flavor despite looking odd enough my cousin won't eat them!

Anyone know it's name? If not, I'll post again when the tomatoes are fully ripe; these are just starting to get their yellow color though the purple blush has been on there for some while.

I don't know what they're called, Kyla, but they are certainly unique and tasty looking! Thumbs up

It looks like a tomato I have called Indigo Rose.

Not Indigo rose but maybe Indigo Kumquat. Take a look:

And thank you also, Porkpal. Heh. We ought to have a taste test. Too bad we can't, eh?

Well I wasn't impressed at all with the flavor of Indigo Rose when I grew that one. Whistling

I liked these when I sampled my neighbor's last year! We'll see how the crop I'm growing does.
