Cherokee Purple Tomatoes

I bought Cherokee Purple Tomatoes and planted them today. Have you ever grown or even heard of them? I hope they do well for us we really enjoy fresh picked tomatoes.

They are said to have originated with the Cherokee people.

Cherokee purple is the name of a cultivar of tomato, unusual for the deep purple/red hue of its fruit. It was one of the first of the "black" color group of tomatoes. It is also unusual in being extremely popular for the sake of its flavor, instead of only its unusual color. Cherokee Purple tomatoes are beefsteak in style, with green "shoulders" across the top.
