General Information: Green Zebra is a tomato cultivar with characteristic dark green and yellow stripes. It is more tart (described as 'spicy' and 'zingy') than regular tomatoes, and it is an early cultivar.
Green Zebra was bred by Tom Wagner of Everett, Washington, and introduced in his Tater-Mater Seed Catalog in 1983. He first came up with the idea in the 1950's. Commonly, a green tomato meant it wasn't ripe and they were normally thrown out. However, he was intrigued by the idea of a green tomato that was ready to eat.
