Variety type


A prolific small pale-green round cherry tomato with a light yellowish khaki color throughout, the base color of a ripe Green Zebra. Thin-skinned and therefore splits easily in rainy weather or when overwatered. As with most green tomatoes the flavor is very good. The fruit drop readily from the vine when fully ripe, which helps to determine when to pick the fruits. The foliage is unusual, like a cross between regular leaf foliage and potato leaf foliage, with indistinct serration to the leaves (see the plant on the lefthand side of the 1st picture). First fruits were truly unremarkable, very small (3 grams/0.1 oz each) and completely seedless. Later fruit were very similar to Green Grape in all aspects.
