Green Zebra organic tomatoes have an amazing, unique rich taste commonly described as sweet with a complex zing.

Green Zebra organic tomatoes were developed by heirloom breeder Thomas Wagner in the mid 1980's from 4 varieties of heirloom tomatoes. Vines show some resistance to Septoria Leaf Spot. For best flavour allow Green Zebra organic tomatoes to fully ripen on the vine. A slight yellowish blush in colour and a firm feel with a bit of "give" are signs the fruit is ripe for picking. Fruit will taste bitter if picked too early, and if left too late may become mealy.

How To Grow
Summer-ripened tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C and beta-carotene. The lycopene in the tomatoes is an anti-oxidant, but is only released when the tomatoes are cooked. They also contain compounds that block cancer-causing nitrosamines. We use the convention of Bush to mean determinate (fruit set more or less all at once on short plants). Vine means indeterminate (fruit sets over a longer time on tall-growing plants). Follow along with this handy How to Grow Tomatoes Guide and grow food.!
