The new tomato, called the "Black Galaxy," was developed by Technological Seeds DM. The company says that the color is the produce of a special pigment, which was derived from blueberries and introduced into the new species. The pigment is photosensitive and the longer the tomato is left on the vine, the darker it gets. The unique pigment also carries health benefits, such as a high concentration of antioxidants and Vitamin C. The black tomato will make its worldwide debut at the Arava Agricultural R&D Exhibition, in early February.
