Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Eva Purple Ball Tomato Seeds
Eva Purple Ball Tomato Seeds (70 days)
Sustainably Grown Approx. 25 heirloom seeds
Indeterminate vines with regular leaves.
Eva Purple Ball Tomato was supposedly brought from Germany in the late 1800s by the family of Josph J. Bratka of Elmwood Park, New Jersey.
Eva Purple Ball is about 2 1/2" long and 3 3/4" wide. It generally weighs around 9 ounces and produces a smooth almost perfect "ball". Good yields. The flavor rich and tasty. Great for salads, sandwiches and salsas.
Strangely even though Eva Purple Ball is from Germany, it seems to excel in hot weather.
