Cherokee Purple

Images

80 days. A contender for one of the tastiest tomatoes. These large, dusky-pink tomatoes have a complex sweet, smoky taste. They are said to have been grown by the Cherokee people of the USA and rediscovered by Craig LeHoullier, then released in 1993 in partnership with Southern Exposure Seeds Exchange. This is not a tomato to grow for bushels and bushels of fruit but one to have on hand for the incredible taste. For best taste, pick when slightly underripe, shoulders will still be green. Can get mushy if left to ripen too long. This tomato is on the US Slow Food Ark of Taste. Indeterminate.
