Aunt Ruby’s German Green Tomato (Heirloom)

Big, sweet beefsteaks, bursting with a fragrant, complex, spicy-sweetness with a touch of tang. A gorgeous green-when-ripe color, this much sought after variety is a real treat to have in your garden, and is said to be the very best tasting green. Reaching an average of 1 lb, Aunt Ruby’s German Green grows in clusters of 2 or 3.

With its intricate, earthy, unforgettable flavor, this one will broaden your tomato horizons. Very adaptable, and easy to grow with good disease resistance. From Ruby Arnold of Greeneville, Tennessee who passed away in 1997.  (www.heirloomtomatoplants.com)

 Green Zebra (Heirloom)

A delicious, tangy salad tomato, ripe just as the green fruit develops a yellow blush, accentuating the darker green stripes. The 3-4 oz. fruits are the ideal size for slicing into wedges for salads. Productive over a long season.

Cherokee Green

Cherokee Green (Heirloom)

Medium-sized, 8+ oz., green fruits acquire some yellowish-orange color on the blossom end when ripe. Lots of bold, acidic, complex tomato flavor.  ‘Cherokee Green’ is essentially like ‘Cherokee Purple’ in plant habit, fruit shape and size and flavor, but the interior ripens bright green and the skin takes on a yellowish-hue when ripe.

85 Days. Indeterminate.
