80 days, dwarf
— 'Tennessee Suited' is a vigorous, rugose
, regular leaf variety that produces fruits that are a rich purple color (clear skinned black) with green stripes. They are medium-sized (four to ten ounce), smooth, oblate in shape, very juicy and tender with a delicious, well-balanced flavor that is neither too tart or too sweet. It should be noted that there is some variability in shape, with some fruits being deeply lobed. As with any thin-skinned pink/purple variety, the fruit are somewhat prone to radial cracking if exposed to wet weather conditions.
