Solanum lycopersicum This is a deliciously sweet and flavorful heirloom variety of tomato! No list of the best tasting heirloom tomatoes would be complete without Cherokee Purple! These fantastic seeds will produce plants loaded with 6-12 ounce purple tomatoes! They will grow and produce fruit until killed by frost and can reach heights of up to 10 feet although 6 feet is considered the norm. They will bloom, set new fruit and ripen fruit continually throughout the growing season. If you have a big green house or if you live in a warm climate with no frost you can enjoy Tomatoes all year long long! Germinate indoors and plant after last frost. Prefers full sun and regular watering. 80 days to harvest.
