Product Overview

Solanum lycopersicum

This old-fashioned variety from Tennessee has a rich flavor and striking color that sets it apart from the rest. Very productive plants.

'Cherokee Purple' is said to have been given to a Tennessee family by the Cherokees over 100 years ago. This treasured tomato has just the right balance of sweetness and even a hint of smoke, making it a winner in taste tests. From summer to fall, you'll harvest more than enough 10–12 oz. tomatoes from this well-regarded heirloom variety. Provide support for vigorous vines that reach 6' or more.

Variety Info

10–12 oz., thin-skinned rose/purple fruits with brick red-colored interior. It is said that in the late 1890s, Native American Cherokees gave seeds of this tomato to someone who kept the line alive. One hundred years later, the tomato was revived, and the seeds became available to the public through retail sales.

Sowing Inside

RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting. Transplant when air temperature is 45°F or warmer, usually 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date. Ideal soil temperature for germination is 70°–90°F.

Sowing Outside

For mild climates only: 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F.
