Heirloom. Cherokee Purple seeds, originating from Tennessee, are thought to have been passed down from Native Americans of the Cherokee tribe. This heirloom tomato variety consistently ranks very high in taste tests. Slice Cherokee Purple tomato for rich, dark color and unmatched sweet, rich taste on sandwiches or in salads. The tomato is a beautiful dusky pink with a deep, rich-red interior. Cherokee Purple grows well in most regions of the U.S. Let the fruit ripen on the vine for the best flavor. This one is a consistent taste test winner at tomato fests around the country. For an heirloom, it is a good producer. In our Michigan test garden, where conditions are ideal and the season is long, we harvest and average of 20 or more fruits from each plant. Vigorous vines benefit from strong staking or caging.

    Cherokee Purple Tomato

    Cherokee Purple is one of my favorite for flavor, it is delicious. I have had difficult years getting much production from this plant but I still grow and am happy with what I get. It seem to be effected more by the elements, but well worth to grow. I give a 5 for taste and a 3 for ease of growing. I will still give it a 5 because it is that good. I recommend everyone to try it in their area.
