Pennington Cherokee Purple Tomato

Fresh, from the garden, hand picked tomatoes are a delicious summer treat. The Cherokee Purple Heirloom tomato is best enjoyed fresh without cooking and makes a divine sandwich, raising the already delectable BLT to astronomical heights. It also shines in a salad or simple, yet mouth-watering, spread of sliced tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella. Cherokee Purple tomatoes contain an abundance of nutritional benefits and are filled with vitamins C, K and A. Fun and easy to grow, the Cherokee Purple tomato requires the perfect sunny garden location in a rich, well-draining soil. Fertilize your tomatoes when first planted and then again when your fruits begin to set, with a vegetable specific granular fertilizer according to the package directions. When first planted place a sturdy tomato cage around your plants to provide the necessary support to hold your mature plants and heavy fruits. Provide water to the base of your plants when the top 2" of the soil is dry. Enjoy growing your very own delicious tomatoes!
