For a dinner party for 10 last weekend I had a huge white oval platter filled with red, yellow, orange and black cherry tomatoes along with the Indigo Rose. They and the Black Cherry were the largest diameter. The yellow Reisentraube, the smallest. Quite like an abstract painting of circles. Hated to break into it but it was totally demolished in a matter of minutes.
The plant is very prolific here and I did have a tough time telling when it was ripe until I flipped the orb up to see that the green belly had turned reddish orange. The intense purple shoulders become very dark, almost black when ripe.
I wouldn't turn the plant down next year but there are so many interesting tomato varieties and so little room to plant.....not sure I would go out of my way for it. The peach tomato, on the other hand, Wausipinicon, has it all...shape, size, skin texture and taste. Don't think twice about the Thai pink....as tasteless as a December hothouse even if interesting color.
