The variety of the blue tomatoes is supposed to be Blue Beauty. I got my seeds from Cole Robbie with his last SASE offer. Being the first time I grow anthocyanin tomatoes, I really don't know what they should look like at this stage. I though they would start turn red sometimes soon, but now I'm beginning to have some doubts.
They sure look different from those depicted here

In containers mind you they are still growing and putting out blooms in almost 100 degree heat.

Worth, what kind of containers do you use?

Regular nursery containers with soil piled up around the drain holes.
Container or not the heat is killing me.

This year it seems everything is far behind. After a quickstart, and a couple of gigantic fruits forming, the following blossoms have been very reluctant to become fruits. Only now, there is some 'coming alive', but it is getting late ...
Black Opal and Japanese Pink Cherry were some of the succesful ones and they have huge trusses with fruits ... Other large ones are lagging behind.
Smaller determinate bush varieties are ripening: Ditmarsher, Cherry Falls, and PPO are loaded.

But some plants haven't even bloomed yet... Esterina and Captain Lucky ...
