This Tennessee heirloom, sometimes called a black tomato, reputably originated from the Native Cherokee Indians before 1890. The unique color of the dark, dusky purple fruits carries through the flesh to the stem end. The large, highly flavorful fruits of the Cherokee Purple Tomato are smooth with slightly ridged shoulders. This is a disease-resistant, indeterminate variety.
