Comment: This is my third year buying Cherokee Purple tomato plants from here, and I'm very happy with my purchases. One year, one of the stems broke in shipping, but I didn't have any problems with customer service issuing a refund. The Cherokee Purple tomato isn't as big of a beef steak as the Striped German, which is my other favorite, but it's denser and has a deeper flavor. I like growing it as a nice contrast to the fruity notes of the Striped German.
