Without a doubt, one of the best tomatoes I have ever eaten. The Black Krim Tomato however, has a smaller yield and none can be given away unless you are really trying to impress a fellow tomato grower and eater!
The Cherokee Purple was rediscovered by tomato grower Craig LeHoullier. LeHoullier claimed that it was more than 100 years old, originated with the Cherokee people. The Cherokee Purple tomato has a unique dusty rose color. The flavor of the tomato is extremely sweet with a rich smoky taste. The Cherokee Purple has a refreshing acid, is watery, thick-skinned and earthy with a lingering flavor.
A new tomato variety called "Indigo Rose", a cross breed between red and purple tomatoes. these are supposedly more rich in antioxidants than their red counterpart. Carey if you find these get me one!!
