    Black Tomatoes

    We're already growing purple carrots, yellow courgettes and white asparagus.
    But black tomatoes are the must-have crop for greenhouses this season, growers say.
    Not only will the dark toms turn heads at the allotment society, they are also healthier than normal red varieties, according to plant scientists.
    The new tomato starts out as a normal green fruit, but ripens to a jet-black colour.
    Alfie Jackson, assistant product manager at Suttons Seeds of Paignton, Devon, said: ‘They are not as sweet as normal tomatoes and have a more savoury flavour, and are nice roasted or eaten in salads.
    ‘There are some dark coloured tomatoes but Indigo Rose is the only real black tomato and is the darkest that has ever been bred.

    'Indigo Rose' black tomatoes latest color food craze


    We have to admit, we never even knew that black tomatoes exist. But they actually do and they're great for your health.
    The 'Indigo Rose' is a new, strangely-colored variety of tomato which is bred by scientists in America. The color might not sound very appealing, but these tomatoes are said to be healthier than the usual red varieties as they have more anti-oxidants. However, they're not as sweet as normal tomatoes and have a more savory flavor. During the growth process, these tomatoes start out green like all tomatoes and when the sun hits the fruit, they turn black. It's worth a try.
