Green Zebra Tomato | Hudson Valley Seed Company | Organic Seeds
A popular garden tomato ripens yellow-green with exotic green stripes.
Not all the best tomatoes are red. Great garden varieties come in many colors, shades, fades, and bands. This striking striped slicer doesn't belong in a zoo--let it root around and become part of your colorful garden landscape and salad plate, where its green and yellow stripes delight. Diversity should run free! How do we know when these guys are ready? Still very firm, but starting to get a little yellow.
