These are hands down the best homegrown Tomato you can plant.
I have grown them several times. They are absolutely delicious!!
Love them. We like to try several varieties of heirloom tomatoes every year. Found a great little seed company in my neck of the woods with the most fabulous selection of open pollinated, non-hybrid, non-GMO, untreated, natural seeds. Heritage Harvest Seeds.
This year we are committing to Indigo Rose, Ferris Wheel (1898), and Nebraska Wedding (1800's).
I like that they don't have too much youge--ya know, the soft seedy stuff in the holes. When I make salad I always squeez that out.
Those heirloom tomatoes are sweet.
We get them around here every year. They're a bit too soft for my taste though.
I had no idea that stuff had a name.
This is YUGE.
I still have to buy my seeds via mailorder. But the heirloom tomatoes are worth it.
The only drawback I have found to the Cherokee Purple is that they tend to spoil quicker than other varieties. But then, the way I eat them that is not a problem.
Heritage Mortgage Lifters Pink are the best....
Me and tomatoes don't get along. I've tried several times to grow different types but they always seem to succumb to some issue or ailment, no matter how I baby them. Tomatoes are fussy, or I just don't live right.
