Midnight Select, AKA J& L Midnight Select. Midnight Select is a slightly smaller sister to J&L’s Bosque Blue with intense color sometimes flecked with green which turns to gold on the ripe tomato. It is not as dependent on direct sunlight for the color. The flavor is full with a dense and satisfying texture. The plants are indeterminate but only reach about four feet. The fruit is borne in trusses of six and the variety is quite productive. The fruit should be picked when the tops turn to black from purple and just before the flesh begins to soften. The blue coloration is the result of anthocyanin in the skin which is a powerful antioxidant.
