Green Zebra Tomato Seeds
Information: An extremely rare variety, the Green Zebra tomato originates from the USA and - as the name suggests - remains green when it ripens, with the development of pale to orange yellow stripes. They produce round, medium-sized, very juicy fruits, which can be used for salads, sauces and jams.
The green zebra is a very fruity stake tomato, which you can start growing from February onwards in a greenhouse or inside your home. The plants can grow up to around 1.5 metres tall and need lots of warmth. When planting out, take care to ensure that there is sufficient space (at least 60cm) between the individual plants.
Care: You can grow Green Zebra tomatoes at home, in a greenhouse or outside. Optimum germinating temperature is between 20°C and 25°C, germination takes place after 5-15 days. You can accelerate germination by priming them overnight in a damp cloth. The young plant should not be planted outside until after the last frost. Tomatoes need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil, which is kept damp (but not wet!). They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more.
