Cherokee Purple Heirloom Tomato

Cherokee purple tomatoes can become purple on the outside, although the inside is often described as a brick color. The fruit itself has a sweet flavor and thinner skin, weighing 10 to 12 ounces as one of the larger varieties. As an heirloom from Tennessee, Cherokee purple tomatoes are indeterminate and will need a trellis or stake to grow and should be spaced 24 to 36 inches apart.

Our tips for growing Cherokee purple tomatoes include:

Harvest: 75 days.
Exposure: Full sun. Plant after danger of frost.
Water Needs: Keep plants evenly moist.
Fertilizer: Fertilize at planting and again as flowers develop.
