A variety cultivated by the Cherokee tribe back when they still lived in Tennessee.  These have a magnificently rich full flavor that balances high acidity with abundant sugar.  One of the varieties that brought heirloom tomatoes back to prominence. This plant is a robust grower that has the advantages of being resistant to disease and drought.
