Does anyone have (or know of a good source) for "Cherokee Purple" tomato seeds or plants? A friend gave me a couple of tomatos from his plant (he didn't save any seeds) and they were the one of the best tasting tomatos I have ever had? the only draw back is they don't keep well and are prone to disease,however they will adapt to soil if planted for two or three seasons.

CHEROKEE PURPLE - IND (80 days) Pre 1890 Tennessee heirloom reportedly of Cherokee Indian origin. Passed down from J D Green to Craig LeHoullier to Seed Savers Exchange. Large, 10-12 oz, beautiful, deep dusky rose color. Absolutely delicious, sweet and rich flavor. Disease resistant, Southern heirloom.

You can get them at:
