Cherokee Purple substitute?
First let me say that this was the best tasting tomato out of the nine different varieties I grew this year. It was also one of the fastest growers, and first full sized tomato to ripen.
The only issue I had with it, is that every single tomato cracked.
This was my first year to grow tomatoes from seed, so I'm just wondering if there is another variety that has a similar flavor, and production level, and is fairly early maturing. I tried Cherokee Purple because so many people on this forum raved about it, and I would definitely grow it again, but if there is something else out there with all of its positive qualities without the splitting, I would give that one a try next year.
