Tomato, Cascade Village Blue (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. Indigo/Red. 75 days. Indet.

This lovely indigo saladette type tomato holds well on and off the vine, is beautiful and tastes great, too. Dark purple-skinned, 3 oz globes ripen to red on the bottom, often with an awesome red star shape that forms under the calyx common to indigo tomatoes. Flesh is red, foliage has a nice dark purple tinge. Bred by Tom Wagner of Everett, Washington, from a cross between an indigo type and his famed Green Zebra tomato.

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Transplant seedlings into 4” pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant into the garden after danger of frost has past, typically late May in western Oregon.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit. Place in a small jar and add 50% more water. Wait for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, decant to clean and dry on windowsill.
