Indigo Kumquat

This is the first year I’ve grown this cherry tomato called “Indigo Kumquat”. The name intrigued me, and the tomato looked pretty in the picture. But when the tomatoes on my plant started ripening, they looked really crazy!  They turn almost black on the top half, while the bottom half is still green, and they start looking more and more rotten as they ripen. When they’re finally ripe though, they look just as advertised – like a (half) indigo colored kumquat. They taste great – not super sweet, but a bit meatier than most cherries, and a bit bigger.
