'Cherokee Purple' is said to have been given to a Tennessee family by the Cherokees over 100 years ago. This treasured tomato has just the right balance of sweetness and even a hint of smoke, making it a winner in taste tests. From summer to fall, you'll harvest more than enough 10-12 oz. tomatoes from this well-regarded heirloom variety. Provide support for vigorous vines that reach 6' or more.
