Tomato 'Green Zebra'

A popular green fruited tomato, 'Green Zebra' has an in-built colour marker that produces yellow stripes indicating when it is ripe. Bred by the creator of hundreds of 'modern heirlooms', Tom Wagner. Firm, crack resistant fruits have zingy flavour. It's early and the colour confuses the pests. One of the most beautiful, modern heirlooms now considered a classic. Fruits in 11 weeks from transplant, yields up to 13.6kg per plant.

How to grow

Sow seed 6-8 weeks before you want to plant out your tomatoes. Never plant tomatoes in the same bed two years running as you risk infection from a build up of pests and diseases. Tomatoes need an open, sunny position, with plenty of air circulation to thrive. Tomatoes are best in a bed which has been heavily manured for a previous crop such as broccoli. A soil that is too rich in nutrients will produce prolific, but soft, sappy growth which is prone to disease. Long, leggy tomato seedlings can be planted very deeply or even on their sides, as the stem is able to grow roots when covered with soil, and a large, healthy root system will develop.
