Chocolate Stripes

About Chocolate Stripes

Developed by John Siegel of Covington, Ohio, from a cross between Schimmeig Creg and a pink beefsteak and introduced to SSE by Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio in 2007. One of the Top 3 “best-tasting” tomatoes of the 2006 and 2007 Gary Ibsen’s Carmel TomatoFest event. Large, indeterminate, regular-leaf 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. Chocolate Stripe, another desirable ‘black tomato,” is an excellent tomato and a fine choice for your tomato garden. Produces well into the autumn. A great sandwich tomato and salad tomato.
