If you were only going to plant one tomato next year, this should be it. Indigo Blue Beauty is not only beautiful in colour with lovely, wide, purple shoulders, it is also delicious with a perfect balance of sweet and acid. It is a small, very meaty beefsteak.
Because they produce so few seeds I have a very limited number of packets to sell and I have to make them a little more expensive because they don't produce much income for the water and space used.
