Cherokee Purple


Description: Very productive plants bear loads of 10 to 12 oz. dusky rose/purple fruit with deep brick red interiors. The tomatoes are absolutely delicious with a pleasantly sweet and rich flavor. With thin skin and soft flesh, the fruit is somewhat perishable, but they taste so good they will be eaten quickly anyhow. Heirloom from Tennessee. Indeterminate. 80 days.

Notes: Purplish or black in color, these medium tomatoes were delicious. The foliage seem to dry out after the first crop was harvested and failed to produced reliable throughout the year. If you have room for them then grow this tomato, otherwise save your space for higher yielding tomatoes. I planted this tomato multiple times with consistent results.
