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? Easy to grow

Review:

I'm biased, Cherokee Purple is probably in the top 3 of my favorite tomato to start with. I planted 5 from seed directly outside and all 5 from Baker Creek came up. The plants grew well although you must have a great support system and give them attention early to support them. Mine ripen decently and with the tremendous amounts of rain, some of my other tomatoes cracked, but not my Cherokee purple. Tomatoes are hefty, not oversized but at least baseball size. Amazing taste, great for slicing, dont let it get too ripe or youll have mush. Love, love love these seeds from Baker Creek.

Review:

This is my 2nd year growing CP. I'm actually growing more than what I planted this year. Something I learned:When critters enjoy your tomato toss it where you will plant your tomatoes next year. Because they will grow the following year. I have dozens of CP (and Amish Paste) growing throughout my garden from them composting. What's interesting is my volunteer CP (and AP) ripen long before this years. I'm freezing most of them to roast and turn into marinara sauce. Omg that was so good!!! Superb slicing tomatoes but great for roasted marinara sauce. It really brings out that smoky flavor.

Review:

Does extremely well here in the Virginia mountains, growing to five feet rapidly in spite of all the conflicting, pendulum-swings of weather lately. The first tomatoes starting ripening last week and are probably the most delicious tomatoes I've ever had. Most fruit that set so far have turned out to be an easy minimum of eight ounces, with most being well over a pound and being over four inches in diameter. The germination rate was also a pleasant surprise. I started 32 of the seeds I received this spring and somehow 39 plants came of them! The variety seems like it deserves its disease-resistant reputation since even with the extreme wet weather events I've so far lost only two plants to fungal issues and there's no sign of blight showing up even this far into the summer. The plants themselves are very stout and sturdy and held up in a derecho this June (which makes sense if they have to hold up those massive tomatoes!), so I'm definitely going to keep growing these.
