Tomato 'Blue Berries'

Blue Berries is an eye catcher at all stages of development. Abundant trusses of 1cm fruit start off a deep midnight blue and transition to pink, ruby and finally ripening to a crimson red with purple shoulders. Colourful, tasty and highly nutritious, these fruits contain high levels of anthocyanin, the anti oxidant found in blueberries. Indeterminate, 75 days, harvest when fruit is fully red and soft.

How to grow

Sow seed 6-8 weeks before you want to plant out your tomatoes. Never plant tomatoes in the same bed two years running as you risk infection from a build up of pests and diseases. Tomatoes need an open, sunny position, with plenty of air circulation to thrive. Tomatoes are best in a bed which has been heavily manured for a previous crop such as broccoli. A soil that is too rich in nutrients will produce prolific, but soft, sappy growth which is prone to disease. Long, leggy toato seedlings can be planted very deeply or even on their sides, as the stem is able to grow roots when covered with soil, and a large, healthy root system will develop.
