    Not sure if this was the plants or the fact that I'm in a community garden but late season blight killed my entire crop for 2015. Didn't try them in 2016

    When I first grew these, they were called "Cherokee BLACK" tomatoes. These Cherokee Purple vines are a bit unpredictable in my garden. Some years they produce very well--some years, not so well. In 2014--which seems to have been a banner year for tomato production in general (as I have deduced from reports of friends and relatives all over the U.S.A who were getting record crops!) my Cherokees produced sparsely. The quality of the fruit was good --of the many tasty varieties I grew last Summer, these were tops for flavour. I do plan to try a new (for me) black variety this year, though--Black Krim--in hopes of getting equally delicious fruit in greater quantity.
