This new tomato combines all the flavor of the heirloom Cherokee Purple but with an improved disease resistance package. Its deep violet color, intense rich flavor, and stunning violet purple hues, offers that true homegrown tomato tang. Where Cherokee Purple was under high disease pressure and did not grow well, this hybrid can be grown and enjoyed all summer long. The Purple Boy hybrid tomato is resistant to nematodes, verticillium wilt, Fusarium wilt and tobacco mosaic. Slightly ridged and very symmetrically shaped, these tomatoes combine juiciness with a strong tomato tang, the type unknown to those rock-hard supermarket varieties.

Tomato Purple Boy is indeterminate, so it keeps growing and setting new fruit all summer long. Stake this vigorous plant well and then offer a little extra help to bring in its crop of giants! We recommend pruning the plant as it grows also. For extra-large tomatoes, remove all but a few flowers, so the plant can concentrate its energy into fewer fruit. They may need some support as they mature on the plant, their massive weight pulling them downwards.

Awesome Tomato

These plants grew to well over 6 feet. They produced clusters of large tomatoes. Some where actually really big. I had a little trouble with them breaking the truss holding the clusters up. They produced well into the heat of summer. Once the temperature got in the upper 90s they slowed down and almost stopped. One the temperature started to ease up in late summer they started production again but with much smaller fruit. They sold well at the market. Their flavor was good but not quite like an heirloom. I will be growing them again this year.

A real winner.

Cherokee Purple, Cherokee Carbon and Dora have been our favorites . We tried Purple Boy this year and really liked it. Great flavor, more symmetrical, crack resistant, good production. We will plant it again next year.

Healthy and beautiful

I have several plants in the garden but Purple Boy seems very healthy and has beaten all other type of tomatoes, it already have at least 6 or more tiny tomatoes on plant and many flowers. I will review again when it will ripen and I will taste but I am almost sure it will be delicious! Franco M
