Striped and Green Varieties for 2023
Aunt Ruby’s German Green (80 days) Reportedly from Ruby Arnold of Greenville, Tennessee. Beefsteak sized fruits are five inches in diameter and weigh one pound or more. Sweet juicy, refreshingly spicy flavour. A southern favourite for making fried green tomatoes. Indeterminate.
Big Rainbow (80-85 days) A spectacular large bicolour beefsteak with slight ribbing. This heirloom has a mottled orange and red exterior with brilliant coloured gold and red flesh. This low acid, firm meaty tomato packs a good old-fashioned, juicy tomato taste. Big Rainbow has vigorous vines and good disease resistance. Indeterminate.
Black Pineapple (aka Ananas Noire) (80 days) Ever wonder what the northern lights taste like? This tomato will let you know. Sweet, fruity, rich, smoky-it’s complex flavour reflects the spectrum of deep red-purple, green, yellow and pinkish red that you see. This is a large multi-coloured beefsteak with wonderful taste. Indeterminate.
*NEW* Chocolate Stripes (80 days) A consistent taste-test winner, large tomato plants yield a plentiful crop of 3-4 inch, mahogany colored with dark, olive green-striping (similar to black zebra). Fruits have delicious, complex, rich, sweet, earthy tomato flavors. Produces well into the autumn. A great sandwich tomato and salad tomato. Indeterminate.
Green Zebra (75 days) While not technically an heirloom, this medium sized bright-green striped tomato has a rich taste, sweet with a sharp bite. A favourite for salads, with an excellent yield. Ripe when stripes turn yellow. Indeterminate.
*SOLD OUT* Tigerella (70 days) Lovely striped golf ball size fruit. Sweet, juicy, incredible flavour. Red skin with yellow-orange stripes. A favourite in many gardens. Indeterminate.
