Imagine growing common vegetables at reasonable prices that have super antioxidant value and a higher level of health value? This season I am growing the deep purple Indigo Rose Grafted Tomato from Jung Seed as a test experiment in my front lawn tomato garden to see how it works (so far pretty great as you can see in the photos). To celebrate summer goodness with me and all my peeps, Jung Seed will be giving away a $75 gift card on this blog post (see rules below).
About the Jung Tomatoes I’m Growing
Indigo Rose purple grafted tomato is GMO free and one of the first tomatoes with a high anthocyanin (a naturally occuring pigment that has been shown to fight disease in humans). Many have labeled it as “the healthiest tomato in the world”. Tomatoes grow to 2″ round and a deep indigo color. The purple coloring occurs on the portion of the fruit that is exposed to light, while the shaded portion starts out green and turns deep red when mature. Inside, the flesh is red. Grafted tomatoes have the added bonus of yielding heavier quantities of tomatoes as well, so I have high hopes of having a giant basket of tomatoes from the tomato garden (below) in just a few weeks.
HOW TO WIN A $75 GiFT CARD FROM JUNG SEED –
It is easy to enter to win the 75 smackaroos. In the comment section below tell me your favorite type of tomato to grow and why you love it so much.
I will randomly select one comment to win the contest on July 17, 2014 and will have the Jung Seed peeps send out the gift card to the winner. Special Note* — contest only open for people who are within the contiguous United States for shipping purposes. Jung Seed has many different varieties of tomatoes, not just the Indigo Rose Purple Grafted Tomato – so go out and see what they have as it’s the perfect time to start planning fall planting in the garden.
