NOT AS PROLIFIC AS BLACK KRIM
Reviewed By: Sylvester017 (Los Angeles County, CA)
Both Black Krim and Cherokee Purple look and taste about the same. I had each plant side by side in the same garden bed in the same soil with the same water drip irrigation and the Black Krim produced more fruit for me. I like Cherokee Purple but find Black Krim the more productive of the two. But CP still deserves a nice rating.
