Indian Zebra

Indeterminate. Regular Leaf. In 2009, Clyde Burson, Jr. sent seeds from his father's seed freezer to Bill Jeffers who has grown this variety ever since, saving seeds from the larger, darker examples each year. Clyde Jr. told Bill that he remembers his father consistently calling his favorite tomato Indian Zebra. When environmental conditions are right, streaks of chlorophyll are retained in longitudinal stripes along the sides of the beautiful maroon fruit, exhibiting the reason for the tomato's name. As grown by our friends in several locations across the Midwest and Deep South, Indian Zebra consistently has given larger tomatoes than Indian Stripe from other sources. Size will be twelve to sixteen ounces, but we had couple that got up to two pounds. We find them to have superior size and flavor the more commonly available Indian Stripe.

Grew out the Indian Zebra strain this season and while I didn't notice a considerable difference in size I did notice the reliable production, hardiness, heat tolerance and consistently good flavor of this south Arkansas variety. Whatever one prefers to call it, Mr. Burson's tomato is a superb dark variety.
