Organic Tomato: Cherokee Purple Planting Instructions:
Cherokee Purple Tomato seeds need plenty of light and transplants require full sun to grow well. Plant seeds indoors, 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost is anticipated. Sow seeds 1/2" deep and 1" apart in 3-4" pots. Allow for plenty of light but ensure 8 hours of darkness in every 24 hour cycle. Harden off seedlings by gradually reducing water and fertilizer prior to transplanting. Plant seedlings 1/8 inch deep, 30-48" apart, in rows spaced 3-4' apart. Avoid transplanting too close together, as this may increase the chance of disease and decrease yield. Use a trellis or other support for easier care of plants and harvesting.

Organic Tomato: Cherokee Purple Harvesting Instructions:
Cherokee Purple Tomatoes are ready to pick about 85 days after planting when they are firm and fully colored. Pick the fruit when they are as ripe as possible. Avoid overloaded plants by picking regularly. When the season has ended and frost is anticipated, pick all the near-ripe tomatoes and continue ripening in brown bags or by placing them on newspaper at room temperature.
