A Seed in Profile: The Cherokee Purple

Record #:
Slow Food Asheville picked the Cherokee Purple heirloom tomato to spotlight for its 2017 Heritage Food Project. In 1990, Craig LeHoullier of Raleigh, North Carolina, obtained and grew a packet of unnamed seeds that had been shared by the Cherokee Indians more than one-hundred years before. The tomato is purple in color and has gained a widespread fame amongst heirloom tomatoes.
