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? Flavor, Color, Abundance

What are the cons? Blight

Review:

Initially I had been skeptical of the hype around purple tomatoes. Grocery store purple "heirlooms" never tasted great to me, and I was put off by the "smokey" flavor profile many mention in reviews. I was so wrong. This took forever to germinate (2 months, bizarrely) but once it did, it took off. A crop of 8 medium sized tomatoes followed. These are so flavorful, and are beautiful to behold. Also make the best chicken biscuit I've had in my life with "sawdust" gravy, or in a biscuit by themselves with chipotle mayo, smoked Gouda, and aforementioned gravy. Bon appetit!

What are the pros? Great flavor-juicy & sweet

What are the cons? None

Review:

Brandywines used to be my favorite. But the last two years they've been done in by early blight. I had to rip them out to prevent infection of the other varieties. First year growing CP's and the flavor is fantastic. I can certainly forgo my old favorite, as long as I have these. Very prolific - bunches of eight to ten on many plants.

What are the pros? Delicious—Hands down

What are the cons? Typical heirloom

Review:

If I could only grow one tomato, this would be it. I adore the flavor. But be forewarned, this and almost all heirloom tomato plants are not very vigorous and are pretty disease-prone. That's just the nature of them. Farmers hybridized tomatoes for a reason. That said, this plant is a little more vigorous and disease resistant than most heirlooms. Still worth growing in my book.

What are the pros? Flavor, texture, long season

What are the cons? A little hard to get going

Review:

This tomato takes a little work to make it go but once it does it's a good producer and produces long after other tomatoes have died off. We picked the final green tomatoes off the vines at the beginning of November- my other tomato plants had been dead for weeks at that point. The flavor and texture are unsurpassed. We used them for fresh eating, making salsa, and spaghetti sauce. Delicious inside and out. Size was anywhere from baseball to softball. Some cracking issues early on with heavy rains but once the season dried up a little, that improved.
