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. Our favorite dark tomato and one of our best selling varieties.

What are the pros? Great taste good yields

What are the cons? None really

Review:

I really love these. Always try to fit these in the garden. They have a great taste. I always suggest these tomatoes to anyone, especially those who are not seed savers or new to it. My mother and father are the type to just go down to the local nursery and buy their hybrids. They are skeptical to lots of the different types of heirlooms I grow like yellow watermelons, yellow "green beans" etc. I introduced them to the cherokee purples and now they grow some of my plants that I sprout every year. They think it's the best tasting tomatos and they are tomato lovers.

What are the pros? Wonderful, when wonderful

What are the cons? Finicky

Review:

These were fantastic in 2012 and 2013. Have had more consistent and tasty results with these than either Carbon or Black Krim in Northern Wisconsin. Have gone downhill since, and I'm not sure whether due to seed or weather... Still better than most black/purple/brown alternatives.

What are the pros? Good flavor

What are the cons? Disease-prone, low yields

Review:

These plants grew to 4 feet and then died, and I only got 2 or 3 small tomatoes. They did taste good. And these plants grew right beside Sun Gold, which grew to 8 feet tall and produced more than I could pick from 2 plants. So I would recommend a different variety. Lots of other varieties taste just as good, and most produce and grow better than these.

Lives up to hype

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.
