There’s something about striped tomatoes and the gorgeous splash of color they add to a garden. Michael’s favorite which we have always planted is the heirloom Mr. Stripey, and this year we added varieties of zebra tomatoes. In the basket are red zebra (the orange tomatoes with red stripes), black zebra (the darkish tomatoes with green stripes), green zebra (self explanatory), and Copia, (yellow and red striped tomato named for COPIA: The American Center for Wine, Food, and the Arts).
The red, black, and green zebras are doing quite well, and the flavor and texture are excellent. The Copia plant has only produced one tomato so far, so I’m not entirely sold on it, but we’ll see if it produces more before season’s end.
