Cherokee Green Certified Naturally Grown Seed

86 days, indeterminate — 'Cherokee Green' is essentially like 'Cherokee Purple' or 'Cherokee Chocolate' in plant habit, fruit shape and size and flavor, but the interior ripens bright green and the skin takes on a yellowish-hue when ripe.

This is another variety submitted to us by author and tomato authority Craig LeHoullier who writes, "In 1997, I grew out 'Cherokee Chocolate' from another seed saver [ed. Darrell Merrell - OK ME D]. One plant gave me fruit that stayed green when ripe with delicious flavor. Suspecting it was a cross, it has nonetheless proven to come true from saved seed, indicating that it may be a mutation."  Craig grew it out several times to verify that it was in fact a stable variety and sent us seed in 2003.  Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
One of my favorite tomatoes
Love this tomato. It has a mild, slightly tart/mildly sweet flavor with irregularly shaped fruits. This will mark the 4th year I have grown it, the last 3 years from saved seed since my original purchase. It is a late starter in central Maryland, but once the plants get going they yeild heavily until first frost (usually early October here). I plant out in May. Generally you do not get the first few tomatoes until almost the 4th of July, but even with only a few plants (all I have room for) I can generally pick 1-2 / day August & September. After the first mild freeze - I generally harvest whatever is left (a lot) green on the plants and pickle them to enjoy the rest of the Winter. In central MD, it does not appear to have any significant disease problems. It is a vigorous indeterminant grower, and will require staking and caging in order to keep it from taking over the garden.
