    These are hands down the best homegrown Tomato you can plant.

    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 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.

    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.
