A fabulous tomato with incredible coloring and delicious flavor. Fruits are dark red-brown with green and orange stripes. The fruits have a wonderful, rich and sweet flavor with juicy consistency. Has similarities to Green Zebra, one of our favorite go-to varieties. Large fruits weigh up to 1-2 pounds so this is one of our largest varieties that we offer. Beware stocking your garden with primarily large tomato varieties as they are more challenging to grow. We get these rare seeds from Tomatofest.com where we hear this variety wins the “best tasting tomato” award regularly at their annual tasting events!
