An American Heirloom variety very much loved.

It was first recorded over 1 century ago and reported as originally grown by the Cherokee Indians.  

The plants are very productive and  produce large fruits (350-450gm), with a unique dusty dark rose pink colour with darker purple shoulders.  

Very much loved has an xcellent complex flavour with a slight sweet aftertaste.

Wonderful in saltd, fresh, a perfect slicer for tomato sandwiches!

  2. Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle, moving in small pots
  3. When about 8/10 inches tall, plant in their growing position ( either in the greenhouse or gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions).
  4. Plant out 20 inches apart in a warm and sunny spot in moist, fertile well drained soil and keep watered, fertilizing regularly starting from when the plants have the first flowers, and for all the season.
