USDA approves purple genetically modified tomato

In 2023, Norfolk Plant Sciences may sell a genetically-modified purple tomato.

It tastes, smells, and looks like a tomato. It's purple.

Scientists believe the purple tomato is healthier and lasts longer than red tomatoes.

British biochemist Cathie Martin developed the tomato.

Scientists used transcription factors from snapdragons to turn tomatoes purple.
