Description
Cherokee Chocolate Certified Naturally Grown Seed
80 days, indeterminate — Sets fruit that are the same size as 'Cherokee Purple' but the color dark crimson red with shoulders that are brownish-black. It appears to be a stable skin color mutation of 'Cherokee Purple'. Excellent flavor and flesh texture. Sweet, slightly tart, firm but very juicy flesh. Nice slicer.

A variety that originated in the garden of heirloom tomato collector Craig LeHoullier and was introduced to the general public by the Victory Seed Company in 2004. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Not doing so well
The plants had great vigorous growth in new beds that I put together but after getting about 2 foot tall they've developed yellow and black spots (fungus). Since then they've been taken over by stink bugs and I haven't eaten a single tomato. I was getting ready to pick 5 or 6 of them, and just went outside, all of them destroyed. Go figure.

VSC NOTES: Insects are definitely opportunistic and will attack diseased and weakened plants. From your brief description, I cannot tell you exactly what disease affected your plants but it kind of sounds like early blight. Here is a good tool for helping to diagnose tomato diseases - http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/vegetable/tomato-problem-solver/. ~Mike Not really what to rate them since I still haven't eaten any, and I'll be surprised if I eat any of them.

The best!
This is the most delicious tomato in the universe. We have tried numerous heirloom tomatoes over the years, and have found nothing to equal its flavor. Try it--you will not regret it!
