Dancing with Smurfs       

A smaller version of OSU blue (P20), with green tomatoes turning dark purple and then partially red underneath. Exposition to direct sunlight is what makes them turn dark purple. The underside thus remains free of the coloration, and simply goes from green to dark red. Nice in between shades. Click thumbnails for closer details. Round fruits, 3 to 3,5 cm. New anthocyanin selection by Tom Wagner. Pinkish red flesh gets sweeter at full maturity. These tomatoes make an interesting addition to any tomato sauce, adding a touch of mahogany and, of course, anitoxydants. About 70 days.
