    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.
