Tomatoes - "Cherokee Purple"
They look really nice too. So many tomatoes - so little time!
I like the fact that they are not all looking pristine
Couldn't agree more, David. That's how real vegetables look, we've become so misled by supermarkets into looking for uniformity, that a lot of people have forgotten about taste!
Hello Trevor, can I ask if seed saved from Cherokee Purple come true to type? These look very tempting. I grow Purple Russian ( superb flavour) & save seed which come true every year. Tried Black Krim this year for the first time, great fruit, but cant say they were particularly exciting flavour-wise. Thanks.
Hello Jermy, have just posted a comment on 'Purple Russian' asking the questions you have just answered here, so apologise for repetition. Not sure if the question re 'Cherokee Purple' is intended for me or Mark, as I don't grow 'Cherokee Purple' - yet!
Hello Jeremy, as I'm new to this site & can easily get lost in the labrynth of all things computer related I was tapping Mark for info on Cherokee, like you I am a tomato fan & always seeking out taste over form. I'll pop over to your P.Russian Q:
Folks, it was me that posted the photos of the Cherokee Purple tomatoes I had grown... I grew them from commercial seed that I purchased from Plants of Distinction, so I can't say whether they come true next time round. Even so, I recommend them strongly because of their aesthetic value!
Cheers Mark, seed ordered. ( apologies for calling you 'Jeremy' Trevor ?!?!!? told you as a boat builder it's 'hands-on & brain-off' sometimes LOL ;-)))
