Cherokee Purple Tomato is an annual vegetable plant that is typically grown for its edible qualities, although it does have ornamental merits as well. It produces brick red tomatoes (which are technically 'berries') with a deep purple blush and brick red flesh which are usually ready for picking from early summer to early fall. This is an indeterminate variety, which means it produces fruit throughout the growing season. The tomatoes have a delicious taste and a firm texture.
The tomatoes are most often used in the following ways:
- Fresh Eating
- Eating When Cooked/Prepared
- Sunlight: Sun
- Soil Conditions: Moist
Plants are constantly growing, ever-changing, and therefore unique. The plant you receive may vary from the photo, but rest assured, holds the same glorious potential!
