Description
Cherokee Purple Heart Certified Naturally Grown Seed
A 2013 Victory Seed Company release.
90 days, indeterminate — The regular leaf plants are upright and well-branched with good leaf coverage.  Good yields.  The medium sized (up to twelve ounces) fruits are nearly identical to 'Cherokee Purple' in coloration and flavor except that they are heart-shaped. Very tasty.

Sent to us in 2011 by Rock Angier of North Carolina who discovered this tomato in 2006 amongst his 'Cherokee Purple' plants.  They have been quite stable for us in our grow outs, but since it is a relatively new variety, some variability may appear.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

This is a Great TOMATO
I planted three plants this year. They bloomed and ripened much like the Better Boy and Celebrity plants. The fruit was a bit larger and thicker. The tomato was sweet yet good acidity. I love the meaty flesh with very few seeds. The tomatoes ripened over a much longer period as compared to the others which come to ripeness within days of each other. There are a couple of negatives. While I like the darker flesh color, the tomatoes should be harvested when slightly green at the stem. Once the top color changes, the tomato was a bit over-ripe but still very delicious but kept poorly. Those picked with a greenish top held normally. Overall - I replant more as I found them awesome I wish I could post a picture: you would not believe how meaty they are.

Vigorous Plants
I'm growing these for the first time this year. Cherokee Purple has been one of my favorite tomatoes and I really like it's flavor. The Heart version has slightly wispy foliage like most heart tomatoes, but the 3 plants I'm growing are loaded with blossoms and fruit. The plants are very vigorous and healthy and started blossoming earlier than I expected them to. None of the tomatoes are ripe yet, but most are growing quite large. I expect this to be a new favorite as it is more productive than my beloved Cherokee Purple plants have ever been.

A winner!
I grew this tomato the first year it was offered and found the Cherokee Purple taste true to the original, but this new variety was healthier and more vigorous for me. As a fan of heart tomatoes this one has gone to the top of my list and I will be planting it again this year!
