Cherokee Purple is the name of an old variety of tomato that develops a fruit with a deep, dusky-rose color while maintaining a somewhat greenish hue near the stem when mature for eating. Tomato is a warm weather crop best if started indoors about 6-8 weeks prior to final spring frost. Plant 2-3 seeds 1/4” deep per individual cell in fertile, humusy, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Germinates in 5-14 days, transplanting starts to 1 per pot or 18-36” apart in the garden depending on variety. This indeterminate variety will grow indefinitely through the season, producing non-stop fruit, while requiring trellis support. Although vine-ripened fruit is always preferred, tomatoes can just as easily be harvested early and ripen indoors by being stored in a paper bag or box along with a banana for its ethylene gas. Ripest tomatoes may be pulled from the vine by hand, while more firm ones should be clipped with shears.
