Giant 16-ounce fruits offer that true "homegrown tomato" tang

Days to Maturity: 80 from transplant


A beloved heirloom as valuable for its flavor as it is for its unusual look, Cherokee Purple sets giant beefsteaks weighing about a pound and filled with intense violet-purple hues. This is a true legacy plant, believed to have originated more than 120 years ago in the Cherokee nation in Tennessee. The vining plant is very heavy bearing, and each of these tomatoes is a masterpiece of color, flavor, and history. Do not miss this valuable fruit from the American past.

Slightly ridged and very symmetrically shaped, these tomatoes combine juiciness with a strong tomato tang, the type unknown to those rock-hard supermarket varieties. They may need some support as they mature on the plant, their massive weight pulling them downwards. Stake this vigorous plant well and then offer a little extra help to bring in its crop of giants.

Cherokee Purple is indeterminate, so it keeps growing and setting new fruit all summer long. You will find it very easy to grow and heavy bearing. For extra-large tomatoes, remove all but a few flowers, so the plant can concentrate its energy into fewer fruit. For our part, we like Cherokee Purple so much that more is merrier.

Great germination!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

So far I'm incredibly happy with these seeds. I started them indoors and about 7 days later, they sprouted and they look healthy a strong. They're currently about 2 inches tall and thriving. I can't wait until it's nice enough to plant outdoors and I can enjoy my favorite tomato on sandwiches.

This is the first year I've been really successful at tomato growing. Despite lots of rain and a chilly beginning to summer, these plants are producing a lot of great fruit. Very pleased!
