Mr. Stripey

80 days, indeterminate — The regular-leaf plants of 'Mr. Stripey' produce beefsteak-type fruits that are beautifully bi-colored, large, ranging from fourteen ounces to three pounds each, juicy, yet meaty, and flavorful. The fruits are yellow with marbled-red colored flesh.

The exact history of 'Mr. Stripey' is a bit confusing. It was reportedly discovered in Georgia and named and introduced commercially in the 1990s by Wayne Hilton, who at that time owned several old seed company brands. It seems that whomever named this mid-Atlantic American heirloom tomato in the 1990s was unaware that Thompson & Morgan in the United Kingdom was already selling tomato variety with this name. [Refer to the reference tab and the 'Tiger Tom' listing for more information.] Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Great Old-Fashion Tomato
This tomato is a staple in our garden for personal use, but not great for selling at our stand. The flavor is unsurpassed - best slicer we have every had (and we have grown over 100 varieties). It is huge - many over one pound. They are fairly early for a large tomato continue until frost. The plants are monsters so plan to prune or have a large space. Staking is a must. It is very susceptible to blossom rot and will split after just a bit of extra water (think thunderstorm). Still, it is absolutely worth the extra work. We will grow again and again.
