Heirloom, Non-Hybrid, Non-GMO, Open-Pollinated Garden Seed
Tomato – Cherokee Purple
An old Cherokee Indian heirloom, pre-1890 variety; beautiful deep dusky purple-pink color, superb sweet flavor, and very large-sized fruit (12 to 16 ounces each). Cherokee Purple keeps growing and producing new fruit all summer long. You will find it very easy to grow and bears heavy fruit. For extra-large tomatoes, remove all but a few flowers, so the plant can concentrate its energy into fewer fruit. Perfect slicer for tomato sandwiches! Disease resistant, including blight resistance. Be aware, this variety does need to be caged. Be sure to keep all vines within the cage to avoid break-off of the heavy fruits!
