What are the pros? Superb flavor, good producer
What are the cons? One of the first to crack
This was my 8th year growing Cherokee Purple, 2nd year with Baker Creek seed. Good quality, all plants were vigorous and true to type. CP tends be one of the first to crack after heavy rain out of several dozen varieties grown. They're also consistently among the first to get blight. I've never had any BER issues, so there's that. But they continue to produce fruit throughout the hottest months of summer despite disease. Flavor is dependent on many conditions, but this a favorite every year and second only to the finicky Brandywine. Fantastic for sandwiches, salsas and right off the vine. Highly recommended.
