80 days. Century-old cultivar, originated with the Cherokee people.
Giant size fruits (up to 4 inches diameter) have unusual purple hue with dark green shoulders. Fruits are often of weird blocky irregular shape. They are known for the dense juicy texture and outstanding sweet flavor of real " old times" tomato. Excellent for fresh eating, salads and sandwiches.
Fruits are so heavy - they drag the branches down to the ground. Staking the plants helps very little, instead make a straw pad under each fruit, so that they are not touching the bare ground while ripening.
