Cherokee Purple

The Mighty Cherokee

The Mighty Cherokee

According to heirloom tomato lore, in the early 1990’s, Craig LeHoullier received a packet of seeds from John Green of Sevierville, Tennessee. Green said the seeds were from a purple tomato Cherokee Indians gave to his neighbors 100 years ago.

Through the years, Cherokee Purple’s siren song of sweet taste and strong yields have lured many a gardner down the heirloom path. We love the dark flesh and the amazing taste and wholeheartedly agree that this is one variety that TomatoTown cannot do without!
