Tomato ‘Pink Zebra’
This is one of my absolute favourite varieties! I acquired this variety at a seed exchange several years ago, and since then I’ve been unable to track down its history. I believe it might have been a natural cross that stabilized in a garden within the Kootenays, but without finding the original grower, unfortunately I can’t guess any more than that.
I’ve grown this variety some very different climates – hot and humid, to humid and cool, to hot and dry and this tomato has yet to disappoint. This plants are quite large, but have a more erect habit of growth making them manageable – but don’t overcrowd because this variety does not like to be too close to another. The skin is predominantly green, but has very bright (almost florescent!) pink streaks running down their sides. The fruit has extremely full flavour, ranging from acidic to sweet all in one bite. Meaty flesh, this variety doesn’t generally display any cracking or splitting either, and weighs in up to 1lb, but is generally closer to about 300g (10 oz). If you’re looking for something different to try, I highly recommend this variety!
