Grew it for the first time this past season. Plants were vine like and between two plants produced way more fruits than I could handle. Very unique looking and tasting. I'll grow it again.

Indigo Kumquat is one of a series of Indigo tomatoes which are characterized by purple shoulders. Kumquat is a golden color with purple shading on the shoulders, with a light yellow interior. The flavor is different than Ruby but equally good. Fig shaped fruit slightly larger than a standard grape tomato.
