Purple Boy

About Purple Boy

‘Purple Boy’ tomato combines all the flavor of the heirloom Cherokee Purple but with an improved disease resistance package. Its deep violet color, intense rich flavor, and stunning violet-purple hues offer that true homegrown tomato tang! Where Cherokee Purple was under high disease pressure and did not grow well, this hybrid can be grown and enjoyed all summer long. The Tomato Purple Boy Hybrid is resistant to nematodes, verticillium wilt, Fusarium wilt, and tobacco mosaic. Slightly ridged and very symmetrically shaped, these tomatoes combine juiciness with a strong tomato tang, the type unknown to those rock-hard supermarket varieties. Only 80 days from setting out transplants.
