80 days. An old Cherokee Indian heirloom, pre-1890 variety; beautiful deep dusky purple-pink color, superb sweet flavor, and very large sized fruit. Try this one for real old-time tomato flavor. My favorite dark tomato!

What are the pros? Tasty and prolific

What are the cons? Slight tendency to split

Review:

This variety has exceeded my expectations. It germinated well, being larger at planting time than all other tomato seeds I planted at the same time. It produces large very tasty fruit. It produced earlier than all others, including "early" varieties, And has been extremely prolific. Maybe it was all the rain we had this year. The only flaw is a tendency to split at the stem end. Definitely growing this again.

What are the pros? A Great tasting tomato

What are the cons? poor production

Review:

This was the second year I planted this variety. Despite planting in different raised beds and attending to them meticulously, they were the only variety (of 6) that had terrible fruit set and produced very little fruit; too bad because it is a nice tasting tom (meaty, rich, earthy) and adds eye appeal. The skin is very thin and does tend to crack from the stem end, but that is more aesthetic. Certainly a winner on the dinner plate and palate, but it finishes way behind in delivery. Will look for and buy then from successful growers at local farmers markets!

What are the pros? Easy to grow!

What are the cons? Needs a tall support

Review:

I love this indeterminate variety. Two plants produce the perfect amount of tomatoes for a family of 3-4 to consume fresh weekly. It needs a tall support to enjoy tomatoes into the fall (it can easily grow to 9ft). Needs frequent pruning and inspection. I've had a couple tomatoes split and scar because they have grow so large that did not however affect the flavor. I maintain a 100% open air organic garden and have had no issues with blight or mildew I suppose that is because of frequent pruning and good air circulation. I am saving seeds and will most definitely grow this variety again.
