There is probably no tomato more famous than Cherokee Purple. This tomato is rich, full of great juice, has excellent texture, well balanced and satisfying. Shorter vines are heavy producers and begin to ripen their fruits about 80 days after transplant. Fruits weigh between 6 and 16 ounces. Perfect for sandwiches, salsa, salad, fresh eating, market sales and so much more. This is a great tomato for first time growers, too!
