Looks fantastic Jimmy.  I've had Black Krim and wonder if you've had it too.  Can you compare the flavor to your Cher. Purple?

JimmyCee,
Your cherokee purple tomatoes look gorgeous! I have been growing them for the past couple of years and they are delicious. I also grow Black Krim. I grow several types of heirlooms and find they are so delicious.
