About Grub’s Mystery Green

This variety was ‘discovered’ in Australia by David Lockwood (a.k.a. “Grub”) in his Paul Robeson planting in 2005. The original plant that gave the green-when-ripe fruit was regular leaf, but the next generation growout by Denise Salmon (Vancouver BC) gave potato leaf plants with green-when-ripe fruits.
David continued to grow out this tomato and offered seeds to Tomatoville members in the spring of 2006. Introduced to SSE by Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois in 2007. Indeterminate, potato leaf, compact 4′ plant produces heavy yields of 10-16 oz., green-when-ripe beefsteak fruit. Among the earliest among the green beefsteaks. Outstanding flavors.
