80 days, determinate — The vigorous, large, regular leaf plants are good for home gardeners and as a fresh market tomato. The fruits are late season, medium-large (seven ounces average), red with uniform green shoulders and they are full of flavor.
They exhibit a resistance to fusarium wilt races 1 and 2, verticillium wilt race 1. This is not a variant of 'Cherokee Purple'.
Cherokee Red is egg to pear shaped, 4-6 oz. Nice, juicy, and the perfect size for snacking in the garden. Very productive with more ripe tomatoes seemingly popping up over night.
