Grafted Tomato Cherokee Purple

Grafted Tomato Cherokee Purple

When it comes to top Tomatoes for flavor, many would say the rich yet sweet taste of beefsteak 'Cherokee Purple' makes it one of the best. We offer this delicious heirloom variety grafted onto a vigorous, disease-resistant rootstock to make it both more productive and more resistant to soil-borne pests and diseases. Its large, 12oz to 1lb, rosy purple fruits ripen on indeterminate vines about 80-90 days from transplant. Grafted Tomatoes should be planted at soil level so that the graft line, indicated by green tie tape, remains above ground.

The practice of grafting, used in orchards and vineyards for thousands of years, creates the best of two worlds: a vigorous rootstock is fused to the top part of another plant valued for its fruit or flowers. By marrying a vigorous, disease-resistant rootstock to flavorful varieties, this ancient horticultural technique makes heirloom Tomatoes both more productive and more resistant to soil-borne diseases and pests, such as nematodes.

Our stocky seedlings are grown and shipped in 3in pots that are a full 4in deep, so the plants you receive have strong, well-developed root systems. For more information on growing and care, click Growing Guide.
