Cherokee Green

Another variety from heirloom tomato collector Craig LeHoullier who grew out Cherokee Chocolate from another seed saver in 1997. One plant gave him a cross that stayed green when ripe. He then stabilized this seed for Cherokee Green. Produces big, leafy, regular-leaf plants similar to Cherokee Purple that yields 12-16 oz. beefsteak tomatoes that are amber green with a yellowish hue when ripe. This is one of the best tasting, most flavorful of all the green tomatoes. A very fine slicer tomato good as a salad tomato, a slicer for sandwiches and yes, give this a try for a delicious pasta sauce.
