1. depends! size? interior color?

If it is small and green fleshed, could be Green Zebra cherry.
If golf ball or a bit larger, Green Zebra
If a larger slicing tomato, could be Big Zebra
If it is yellow inside, could be one of Brad Gates' Wild Boar Farms releases, like Pork Chop....

no longer any easy answers with tomatoes, since there are literally thousands of types around these days!

6. happens all the time these days - many amateurs now involved in seeds and plants

to make money - but they lack the depth of knowledge and good technique. Buyer beware everywhere now!

7. I got it at a very good nursery / garden center ....

.... it had no plant tag in it but an employee told me she knew it had to be a
Cherokee Purple.

BTW it is a good tomato but nowhere close to a C.P..

2. Several possibilities....

Emerald Evergreen.......

Green Zebra is the most well known, we had some earlier this summer. Flesh inside is green.

Try google, which will lead you to images, and/or pages of heirloom tomatoes.
