This is a recently-popular heirloom that is known for its multiple-disease tolerance and wide adaptability. It is the perfect home garden tomato with abundant purple/red, beefsteak shaped fruits that are firm with dark flesh and very flavorful. Cherokee Purple tomato is a large plant with an indeterminate habit that will provide a longer fruit production.
Tomatoes grow well with asparagus, basil, beans, carrots, celery, chives, cucumber, garlic, head lettuce, marigold, mint, nasturtium, onion, parsley, peas, peppers and marigold. Basil will repel flies and mosquitoes from your tomato plants while also improving the growth and flavor. Beebalm, chives and mint will improve the health and flavor of your tomatoes. Keep potatoes, fennel, dill, cabbage and cauliflower away from your tomato plants.
