Product Description

Climbing. Medium flattened globe shaped fruits: purple/pink skin with dark shoulders, interior ranges in colour from purple to green to brown. Beefsteak type with very juicy flesh. Grown for its exceptional flavour; very sweet.

One of the most popular of the non-traditional heirloom varieties of tomato, the Cherokee Purple grows to both great height and gives fruit of large size. It’s very tasty with what’s usually described as a “tomato-ey” flavour and has a distinctive deep reddish-purple colour. Cherokee Purples are some of the most eye-pleasing and distinctive of tomatoes in both appearance and taste.
