About Green Zebra

Developed in 1985 by tomato breeder Tom Wagner, this is an unusual and exquisite green tomato chosen by Alice Waters for her restaurant, Chez Panisse, in Berkeley, California. The 2-inch round fruit ripens to a yellow-gold with dark-green zebra-like stripes. The flesh is lime-emerald in color that has an invigorating lemon-lime flavor. A great green tomato for brightening up salads and other tomato dishes. Try our Green Zebra Tomato Seeds for your tomato garden and enjoy a wonderful addition of color to your salads and sauces.

    A unique tomato that we grow every year. Very productive. Can be tart early, but as fruit matures, it gets a distinctly yellowish tinge, with the most wonderful sweet/tart flavor. Don't pick it too soon!

    Plant is a little shorter than other indeterminate tomatoes. I ended up treating them more like a Determinate tomato plant, I put them in a cage instead of growing up a string. They were not very prolific until the late in the season, hen they were very prolific! The flavor is mildly acidic and not sweet. My favorite thing to do with them was make Salsa. The fact that they were not sweet and not overly acidic made them amazing in very spicy salsa! I pared them up with Lemon Spice Jalapenos with cilantro for a very pretty and tasty salsa!
