Tomato Stripes of Yore

Bred by Brad Gates, this medium to large-sized, salad tomato, is characterized by its distinct appearance. Transitioning from green with blue-purple shoulders to a rich dark yellow hue with striking blue-purple contrasts upon ripening. Within, its flesh is delightfully firm and succulent, offering a gratifying juiciness. Initially the taste has a subtle sweetness, which changes into a refreshingly distinct tomato taste.
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.
