My goal is to be just half as good at making new tomatoes as Keith Mueller. This is another one of his tomatoes. It is also another must have. Just buy it. I won't do it justice describing how good it is. If you like Cherokee Purple but wish it would hold up on the counter an extra day or two then this is the tomato you have been looking for. It is also quite early for a big purple tomato. One of the best. Check out Liz Birt and Bear Creek too.
