Green Zebra

Solanum lycopersicum



Full Sun

77 Days to Harvest 

3-4 oz. fruit 

Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked


A striking variety with a flavor to match. The fruit develops a yellow blush which make the green stripes really stand out, and the fruit is the ideal size for slicing into wedges to add to salads. It has a delicious rich sweet rich flavor and produces strongly through the season. Technically not an heirloom, but was instead bred from 4 different heirloom varieties and released in 1985.


Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
