purpleis the name of a cultivar of tomato, that develops a
fruit with a dark mahogany-red color while maintaining a somewhat
greenish hue near the stem when mature for eating. It was one of the
first of the darker color group of tomatoes sometimes described as
"blacks", marketed by US seed companies to home gardeners.
Cherokee Purple tomatoes are beefsteak in style. They are also
notable for having a dense, juicy texture, with small seed locules
irregularly scattered throughout the flesh. The comparatively dark
interior color is enhanced by the tendency of the seeds to be
surrounded by green gel. Approx. 45 Seeds/Pkg.
