Cherokee Tiger Black
Country USA  +
Description The seeds that I received are obviously no The seeds that I received are obviously not stable, as all three plants that I grew were very different, as far as the foliage and growth habit is concerned. However, fruits were very similar on all plants, smallish round purple black with silver pink stripes, 1-2 oz. Flavor is rich, very good to excellent, but the flesh is very firm, at least at the beginning of the season. I think it is best suited for canning, as fruits hold their shape very well. Good keeper. Det, dwarf plants, some plants with chartreuse colored foliage. Matured a bit later than its parent, [[Bonte Tigret]]. t later than its parent, [[Bonte Tigret]].
