Black tomatoes will eventually ripen

It has taken weeks after the black skin colour developed,  but eventually  tomato 'Indigo Rose'  has ripened  - the glossy black of the sun-facing side is matched eventually by red on the shaded side, and the tomato has finally softened.  The taste is rather bland, lacking the balance of sweetness and acidity of some of the older cultivars like 'Gardeners' Delight', but it will add an interesting colour to salads!
