About Cherokee Purple

Cherokee Purple is a North Carolina heirloom with flavor that rivals, and some say surpasses, Brandywine – extremely sweet and complex! Productive plants – even in drought-plagued heat waves – producing large crops of juicy 12 oz. fruits. Beautiful green shoulders on deep rose to purple bodies. Indeterminate and requires strong support because of heavy cropping. Mid-Season, about 80 days to maturity.
