Growing Calendar for Tomato Plants - Indigo Kumquat F1 x3
Delivery: Late May to Mid June
Indigo tomatoes are a fairly new class of open pollinated and hybrid varieties which have great taste and high levels of health benefiting anthocyanins. These naturally occurring pigments give the tomatoes a beautiful purple colour and are important antioxidants.
Tomato Kumquat gives you tangerine-orange coloured fruit with indigo anthocyanin pigments which give the shoulders and crown a beautiful purple. Each of the fruits weight around 30-35g and have a wonderful aromatic flavour. They have an excellent balance between sweetness and acidity. These fruits are the perfect size to pop in the mouth and savour. They grow on the plants in large clusters up to eight fruits.
They are a very productive and high yielding variety which, when planted straight away, given good compost, feed and support will produce fruits for a long season.
Tomatoes taste just lovely picked fresh from the vine, tomatoes ripened by the sun have a unique flavour and sweetness making them great to add to salad, snack boxes or reduced to make delicious sauces.
Please unpack the plants as soon as you receive them and sit them in a tray of shallow water if they appear to have dried out in transit.

When tomatoes are plentiful, home made tomato sauce is just the ticket. After processing in the food processor, I usually portion, add additional flavourings, such as chilli, smoked paprika, basil or mushrooms then freeze.
Long lazy summery days in the garden cry out for simplicity, allowing succulent produce to make its own statement. Lend a helping hand by choosing from the many different varieties of tomatoes which are now so freely available.
