Tiny Tomatoes!

These little seedlings will eventually produce Cherokee Purple tomatoes.  A favorite here at the Patch for fresh eating.  Their journey from seedling to yummy tomatoes will be posted here.  Aren’t you lucky?  Cherokee Purple tomatoes are a pre-1890 heirloom from Tennessee.  The plants produce 10 to 12 ounce fruits that have a dark pink/purple color when ripe.  It’s one of the best fresh eating tomatoes we’ve grown.  There’s nothing like the taste of a fresh homegrown tomato, but a fresh homegrown Cherokee Purple tomato is a special treat.
