80 days, indeterminate — 'Cherokee Chocolate' sets fruit that are the same size as 'Cherokee Purple' but the color is a darker crimson red with shoulders that are brownish-black. It appears to be a stable skin color mutation of 'Cherokee Purple'. Excellent flavor and flesh texture. Sweet, slightly tart, firm but very juicy flesh. An excellent slicing variety.

This variety originated in the garden of heirloom tomato collector Craig LeHoullier in 1995. After determining that it was stable, Craig named it, shared it with seed savers, and sent us seeds. 'Cherokee Chocolate' was introduced commercially to the general public by the Victory Seed Company in 2004. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
