I saved seeds from my "test" plant last year, Cherokee Purple. This year I have dozens of them! Big, strong, early fruit, super tasty.

They do crack a bit too easily, but seed savers can't be choosers.

Tomato Dirt note
Cherokee Purple is an outstanding heirloom beefsteak variety, producing fruit up to 16 ounces. We agree with Chuck ... it's a terrific variety!
