My friends, I present to you the most delicious tomato on earth.... the Cherokee Purple!
Really. These things are goofy looking, and bruise if you so much as look at them hard. But if you want to make gazpacho or a bloody mary, or just tomato juice, THIS is the heirloom tomato to get. Nugget and I made a last-minute non-spicy salsa with them one day, and I kid you not I drank the juice out of the bottom of the salsa bowl!
They're also lots of fun to paint. I don't get to break out the alizarin crimson very often :)
