Default Cherokee Family

Folks, I once saw a complete lineage of all of the Cherokee varieties, and can't find it now. Does anyone know where it is?

Wow-I never knew there were so many in the Cherokee line. Thanks for reposting. Has anyone succeeded in growing all of them?

And it is not even close to the total list. Cherokee Purple has been grown so much over the last @30 years that it has crossed in people's gardens hundreds if not thousands of times. I have two such in my seed collection. One is Cherokee Jumbo which is a Cherokee Purple type tomato but about twice as large by weight and another is a smaller fruit about 2/3 normal size. Cherokee Jumbo is a pretty good tomato. Visually and taste wise it is the same as Cherokee Purple. Size is the only significant difference.

Here is a sliced Cherokee Jumbo weighing 1.5 pounds. It had a soft spot in the middle from fruit worm damage beside the stem. Otherwise, it was a fantastic tomato.
