This heirloom tomato, named after the legendary Indira Gandhi, first female prime minister of India, is one of our customer's favorites. It's also one of the darkest black tomatoes we carry. We love dark tomatoes like this one for their excellent, smokey-sweet flavor and gorgeous color. In addition, the high lycopene content in "black" tomatoes makes them extra good for you. Plant has an indeterminate growth habit (needs a tall tomato cage). A good sub, if sold out, is Paul Robeson, Cherokee Purple, Cherokee Carbon, or Black Bear.
Biodynamic-certified young tomato plant. Pre-order now for pick up at Love Apple Farms Spring Plant Sale.
