44. Sorry I'm so late!

Cherokee Purple is my favorite tomato of all! So cool that you had a part in saving such a delicious variety. But I have a question...

I got to the market a little too late last week, and my favorite heirloom growers were a little low on stock. They were all out of Cherokees, so the guy recommended a container of fairly small (2in dia), quite round, blemish-free tomato, with coloring very much like the cherokee purple. The grower told me that this tomato was so good, that next year, he is going to plant his whole field with just them.

Well, come to find out, he wasn't just blowin' smoke! They were so delicious...dark and juicy, and a flavor that almost had a hint of smokiness. Fantastic on pizza! He told me the name; but, of course, I forgot. Now this week I have to go out of town, and will miss the market.

Do you have any idea what that tomato's name was? Maybe if you mention it, it will jog my memory.

Thanks.
