Prudens "Purple" Tomato
Similar to Brandywine in color and flavor, but earlier, slightly smaller (up to one lb), and frankly, easier to grow well. Very good disease resistance and productivity. Surprising earliness for a tomato of this large size, silky texture, and complex, sweet flavor. A favorite with market gardeners for its dependability and earliness. 25 seeds
Purple is a misleading word when it comes to tomatoes. Cherokee Purple is actually a "black" or mahogany-green tomato, and Prudens Purple is a lovely pink-red.
