Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Amethyst Jewel - sliced fruit. 2013-08-28.


Indet., regular leaf, small, irregularly shaped pink fruits, 2-8 oz, with meaty interior and very few small seed chambers. The fruits at the bottom of the plants were solid pink with just a bit of purple/blue tinge, probably because they were shaded by the dense foliage. Later fruits that grew higher on the plants have the gorgeous purple tinge that is typical for antho tomato varieties. Very good sweet flavor. Heavy producer. (20 seeds / packet)

  • Developed by Brad Gates at Wild Boar Farms, Napa, California.
  • Introduced by Wild Boar Farms in 2013.
  • According to Brad Gates, there is still a very small percentage of Amethyst Jewel plants in summer 2013 that produce non antho pink fruits, so it is not 100% stable yet. If you are saving seeds, please select for the fruits with anthocyanin pigmentation.
