Green Zebra was bred by Thomas Wagner and released in his 1983 Tater Mater Seeds catalog. Four varieties went into the makeup of Green Zebra.
Green Zebra is an unusual tomato, it matures into a light green/yellow with deep green stripes and light green interior flesh, this tomato has a bright and unique flavor. Excellent to brighten up salads or sauces, the citrus flavor will certainly surprise and entertain your guests or family! Green Zebra has been described as "zingy, zippy, lemon-lime flavored and tangy".
Green Zebra is recommended by the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. "These seed varieties have been tested and proven resilient in the Florida backyard garden."
I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.
