Blue tomatoes are a type of edible plant genetically engineered by the Terrans.
Its taste mimics whatever it is mixed with. Able to grow in bulk in practically any environment with minimal water and light, they are ideal for hydroponics and preliminary colonization. Blue tomatoes hold a large amount of nutrients that can sustain the average terran for up to 2 days.
The most commonly processed form of the plant is Soylent Blue. Appearing as a cubes of blue spongy material, soylent blue can supplement the food needs of a highly populated planet.
As a relatively new innovation, may rumors have surfaced on what gives the tomatoes their unique color. Some even claim alien influence being a factor. All major terran governments using the plants disavow these unfounded claims without evidence.
