Last year we introduced Indigo Rose, the world's first black tomato. This year we have upped the ante by grafting this together with a creamy-white cherry variety to produce the first black and white tomato plant! Throughout our 2014 tomato trial this starkly contrasting duo has proved to be one of the biggest talking points. Perfect for patios and small spaces - they'll create the wow factor this summer! And the two colours boast two very different flavours: Indigo Rose is clean, fresh and savoury with a hint of smokeyness while White Cherry is all sweet and fruity with barely a touch of acid. (Cordon variety - one stem grown by pinching off side-shoots as they appear, needs staking and tying in.)
Indigo Rose - A black-skinned tomato, even healthier than red varieties, nice in salads or, even better, roasted.
White Cherry - Unusual, slightly larger, creamy-white with a sweet, fruity flavour.
- Same type
- Same speed of growth
- Same heavy-cropping nature to produce much bigger crops from less space
- Perfect for patios & small spaces
- They'll create the wow factor this summer!
We’ve grafted two tomato varieties onto one plant, so you can pick a bountiful crop of two mouth-watering varieties from just one plant! Both have been selected for their quality and taste and will perform well in a sunny spot outside or in a greenhouse. And not only do you get bigger crops from less space but, because they’ve been grafted for extra vigour, they’ll be ready to pick earlier too!
Please note: There is a possibility that your plant will include a grafting clip, if it does, this is an integral part of the grafting process and that it should be left in place. As the plant grows it will naturally shrug off the clip.
