The Cherokee Purple tomato, after years of dormancy, was rediscovered by tomato grower Craig LeHoullier, who reports that it originated with the Cherokee people over a century ago. The Cherokee Purple has a unique dusty rose color, and an extremely sweet flavor with a rich smoky taste. The Cherokee Purple has a refreshing acid, is watery, thick-skinned and earthy with a lingering flavor. The Cherokee Purple plants are very prolific, making this plant a good heirloom for gardeners and farmers.
