Blue Gold Berries is an eye-popping gold cherry tomato that blushes dark blue to purple where the skin receives the sun, while the green portions ripen to a burnished gold color. Fruit is produced as clusters of 5-8 tomatoes in a lattice pattern.
Anyplace the sun makes contact on these bright yellow tomatoes, their skin turns dark blue due to high level of antioxidant compounds known as anthocyanins, except where the tomatoes are shaded from the sun, where they remain their natural bright gold color.
Highly productive Blue Gold Berries plants produce cherry tomatoes with a savory, complex tangy flavor and outstanding storage time for a cherry tomato.

How to select:
Choose young, firm tomatoes with just a hint of “give” on the blossom end. Birds can be a problem, and this variety can be harvested a couple of days early and left to ripen in a warm place indoors, without damaging its quality.
How to prepare:
These are good right off the vine, used as snacks or to accompany sandwiches, soups and pasta.
