Cherokee Purple   Beefsteak / Deep Pink / 12 ounces / 75-90 days / Open Pollinated / Indeterminate


An Ark of Taste variety.  Pre-1890 variety, reputed to be an old Cherokee Indian heirloom.  Uniquely colored dusty rose-brown fruit with delicious, old-time flavor.  (“The taste was outstanding.  It wants a sunny spot.  Very pretty-looking fruit, dark pink with green shoulders.”)
