The black variety of tomato is called „Indigo Rose” and was bred by a team of scientists from Oregon State University, led by prof. Jim Myers botany. The intention of the researchers was to grow a variety of tomato that would combine the antioxidant properties of lycopene contained in ordinary tomato varieties with other antioxidants that the American botanists intended to introduce into these vegetables.
Anthocyanins are organic compounds, the dyes are cyanidin, pelargonidin or dolphinidine – natural plant substances, causing the fruits to take on dark red color. The pigment contained in the skin of these exceptional tomatoes contains anthocyanin dyes. Anthocyanins, occurring among others in red grapes, cherries, blueberries, blackberries and chokeberrys, they have long been regarded as very beneficial for our health. Scientists believe that due to the high antioxidant content, eating black tomatoes protects us from civilization diseases (obesity, diabetes), on the development of which are affected by free radicals. Researchers also point out that the anthocyanins contained in the „Sun Black” tomatoes slow down the ripening process, so they spoil later from red and are more resistant to fungal diseases. Pigment in tomatoes, is mainly in the fruit peel and is light-sensitive, which means that the longer a tomato has the chance to stay on the bush in the sun, the darker it becomes. Apart from skins and nutritional value Sun Black tomatoes are no different from the traditional ones – they have red flesh and the same taste. Researchers have asserted that no genetic modification was used to make black tomatoes, and that their exceptional properties were obtained using traditional crossing techniques.
