Green Zebra Tomato Seeds (Organic)

Green Zebra Tomato Seeds (Organic)

Refreshing Tomato Wonder

The Green Zebra Tomato, a distinctive and visually striking heirloom variety, originated in the United States, specifically in the 1980s from the breeding efforts of Tom Wagner. Known for its unique appearance and vibrant flavor, this cultivar has become a favorite among gardeners and culinary enthusiasts.

Within the Green Zebra Tomato family, there aren't distinct subspecies, but this variety stands out for its compact, indeterminate vine growth habit. The plant features lush foliage that provides cover for the small to medium-sized, round fruits with a remarkable appearance—green stripes over a yellowish-green base color, resembling a zebra pattern.

Taste-wise, the Green Zebra Tomato offers a tangy, slightly sweet flavor with a hint of citrus. Its firm, juicy flesh and refreshing taste make it a delightful addition to salads, salsas, and garnishes, providing a unique and zesty twist to culinary creations.

When planting from seed, Green Zebra Tomatoes thrive in well-draining, fertile soil with good moisture retention. Start seeds indoors approximately 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date, ensuring warmth and adequate light for healthy seedling development. Transplant the seedlings outdoors after the soil has warmed and there is no risk of frost.

These tomatoes prefer full sun and consistent watering throughout the growing season. Mulching around the plants helps maintain soil moisture levels and prevents weed growth. Providing support for the vines and regular pruning aids in healthy growth and optimal fruit production.

The Green Zebra Tomato's distinct appearance, tangy taste, and adaptability in various culinary uses make it a sought-after choice for gardeners seeking a unique and flavorful addition to their harvest.

Planting & Care

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when individual fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.
