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? Grows well, Very tasty

What are the cons? I want more

Review:

I grew 7 of these and got 35 lbs total. Average weight was 12 oz. They like sun! I put them out in late may and harvested from August 3rd to October 12th. These did better than all my other tomatoes (Robeson and Prudens). These are the ones I will continue to grow out of the three purples I have done.

What are the pros? Superb flavor, good producer

What are the cons? One of the first to crack

Review:

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.

What are the pros? great producer, best taste!!

What are the cons? tricky to germinate

Review:

These can be tricky to germinate and definitely need a heat mat and a warm room, but it is so worth the effort! Even as a container plant (planted in kitty-litter buckets w/ holes drilled in the bottom), these plants got HUGE! And they produced splendidly, but I still want to grow even more this year! They did well with relatively little maintenance, although they do need a lot of water. The flavor though! Best tomato I've ever had! My parents say they're great raw for salads and sandwiches. Cooked, they have a rich, earthy flavor I haven't found in any other tomato. Everyone who tried the salsa I made with them said it was the best salsa they've ever had, and I definitely agree! I cannot recommend these highly enough!!

Review:

First year growing these and they are the new favorite in our garden. We loved everything about them. Amazing flavor, wonderful texture, beautiful color. Great for fresh eating and also made delicious salsa with great consistency. Large plants must be supported well.

We grew this variety for the first time this year and it will be returning from now on. I have been eating them raw on sandwiches for a few weeks now and they have no peer.
