Cherokee Purple

Units in Stock: 2
SOLD OUT

Cherokee Purple tomato plants are one of the best tomatoes we have ever tasted! This tomato will convince you to grow Heirloom varieties. They are from the Tennessee Cherokee Indians, discovered over 100 years ago and have a thin skin and soft texture. When fully ripened they have dark reddish-purple color, full acidity and rich, old fashioned, sweet flavor. Make sure to mulch for best results and hold back on the watering. Our best results were during a 8 week drought with minimal drip watering. 80 days
