Product Details

The Cherokee Purple Tomato is a renowned heirloom variety celebrated for its unique appearance and outstanding flavor. This indeterminate tomato plant produces large, beefsteak-style fruits that are characterized by their striking deep, dusky purple color. The skin of these tomatoes often has a slightly ruffled texture, adding to their visual appeal. Inside, the flesh is a vibrant reddish-purple, creating a stunning contrast when sliced. Beyond its captivating looks, the Cherokee Purple Tomato is beloved for its rich, complex taste profile. It offers a perfect blend of sweetness and smokiness, often described as having a hint of earthiness or even wine-like undertones. This makes it a favorite for slicing, salads, and gourmet dishes.

In terms of cultivation, Cherokee Purple Tomato plants are indeterminate, meaning they continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the season. They typically start to bear fruit around 80 to 90 days after planting. While these tomatoes require some support due to their size and weight, they are known for their adaptability to various growing conditions. Gardeners and food enthusiasts value the Cherokee Purple Tomato not just for its exceptional flavor but also for its role in preserving heirloom varieties and adding a unique touch to garden harvests and culinary creations.
