Now, they say it is hard to grow heirlooms and it is… But Cherokee Purple is a success story for many. And purple it is NOT, but rather a dusky rose color with that rich, complex sweet flavor you find in only your sophisticated heirlooms! Fruit averages about 3/4 lb. Although an indeterminate, it has relatively short vines and is more manageable. You can even grow this one in a container. Maturity from transplant: 77 days.
