Cherokee Lime

$4.00

My all time favorite GWR slicer. Plants are RL, Ind, and a little bit of history will be included here too.

Noted From Bill Jeffers*** In 2009, I received a packet of 35 – 30 seeds for Golden Cherokee tomato from Neil Lockhart.

From four plants, one gave me clear skin, pure yellow tomatoes rather than the expected yellow/red bicolor with yellow epidermis.
In 2010, both Ted Corbett and I each grew a plant from the seeds saved from the pure yellow tomatoes that instead yielded green-when-ripe tomatoes with clear skin!

Since the name “Cherokee Green” already was taken, and because the interior of the tomatoes are lime green, Ted and I named our new variety “Cherokee Lime.”
The typical Cherokee Lime should be 5 – 7 ounces, sometimes a bit lumpy but not distorted, contain plenty of tasty gel, and sport a bit of pink blush on the blossom end***
