Not for cooler climates

The flavor was lacking and texture mealy. I grew these in a cooler summer in northwestern Washington. I think they needed more sun and heat. I will try again in my new warmer climate though!

Unusual taste, worth the experience

Plants suffered a little blossom end rot early in the season, but after the crazy weather self corrected and I got watering correctly under control, the plants stayed healthy the rest of the season and put on dozens of perfect little fruits. Pretty late for such a small fruit, it was still worth the wait. I don't know how to describe the flavor, but I would say it barely even tastes like a tomato. That isn't a bad thing in this case. I think it has a lot of citrus and sweet melon flavors, with a mildly acidic tomato undertone. An absolutely stunning addition to any salad, but also good to mix into a colorful tomato sandwich, or to roast/bake. I recommend this to adventurous gardeners who want to try something different. It's a solid, healthy, easy plant, and I will absolutely be adding this to my garden in the future.

Love these beauties!

I plant a couple Green Zebras every year. They are uniquely tasty and add nice variety to the plate as well. I've had no problem growing them in a raised bed, and they weathered last year's 116-degree heat wave just fine. Two (green) thumbs up!

Great tomato plants

I alway purchase these plants from TS because they are one of the few seed companies that offer the green zebra as a plant. They are alway a winner in the garden each plant producing dozens of tomatoes. Although this tomato was displaced from our favorite by TS's Ananas Noire tomato they come in as a close second.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of transplant.

Determinate tomatoes: grow compactly, sprawling laterally, usually do not require staking, and fruit ripens over a short period of time
Indeterminate tomatoes: grow on long vines, generally require pruning to 1 or 2 leaders that need to be trellised
• Fertile, well-drained raised beds covered with plastic mulch promote early growth and better yields
• Tomatoes are high feeders and will benefit from regular fertilization with Age Old Bloom
• To prevent blossom end rot use a high calcium amendment
• Overwatering can cause fruit to crack

Direct Sowing
• Not recommended

• Sow seeds in trays 6-8 weeks before anticipated transplant date; up-pot into 3-4 inch pots when the first set of true leaves appears
• Strong light and cooler temperatures (60-70°F) prevent plants from getting leggy
• Fertilize with Age Old Grow every 10-14 days
• When transplanting work in compost, 1/2 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer, and handful of bone meal
• Determinates can be spaced 18-24 inches apart, indeterminates 24-36 inches apart
• Tomatoes can be buried up to the top 2 sets of leaves
• Use Kozy-Coats or Victorian Bell Cloches to protect young plants

Common insects: Flea beetles and tomato hornworms
Insect control: Pyrethrin or row cover for flea beetles, and Monterey B.t. for tomato hornworms
