Re: 2010 Tomato Roundup

I am located in middle TN,at the bottom edge of Zone 6 or the top edge of Zone 7, depending on which map you use.
Two favorite heirlooms I have are MR. STRIPEY and CHEROKEE PURPLE. My mother grew Mr. Stripey for years and years, and I continue the practice. Both Mr. Stripey, a large, beautiful yellow and pink striped fruit, and Cherokee Purple, a medium-sized dark, purplish red fruit, have awesome flavor for fresh eating.
