History

  • Craig LeHoullier (NC LE C) initially assumed this to be a stable mutation from Cherokee Chocolate that first originated in his garden in 1997, from the Cherokee Chocolate seeds grown by Darrell Merrell of OK (OK ME D). Subsequent growouts by other gardeners showed that there was a chance that Cherokee Green was a cross, not mutation (though Craig has seen only green fruit from saved seeds in subsequent generations). Other gardeners have seen red, yellow or chocolate colored fruits of various sizes from shared seed. Further work needs to be done to grow out a range of seeds from fruit in its initial appearance in Craig's garden.
