The plant is some kind of Tradescantia.

The tomato looks like one in a series called Indigo. Does the entire plant periodically turn black?

Yes, I'm sure the tomato is an Indigo. I couldn't tell you which one though. I asked about the plant turning black because we have noticed that the entire plant will turn black for a couple hours then be green again. And all the Indigos will be black at the same time. Its very weirdly disturbing. Smiling

The fruit starts off bluish purple then turns red when it is ripe.

That helps me solve this, thank you!
