Description

This Tennessee heirloom, sometimes called a black tomato, reputably originated from the Native Cherokee Indians before 1890.  The unique color of the dark, dusky purple fruits carries through the flesh to the stem end.  The large, highly flavorful fruits of the Cherokee Purple Tomato are smooth with slightly ridged shoulders.  This is a disease-resistant, indeterminate variety.

Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost date, transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed.  Plants require support and frequent fertilization.  Approximately 35-40 seeds per packet.
