History * Bred by Tom Wagner, a tomato and potato * Bred by Tom Wagner, a tomato and potato breeder from WA, the founder of Tater Mater Seed, from a deliberate cross that involved [[Banana Legs]] variety. Tom Wagner named it in memory of his friend Mark Casady. * Here is the information that was supplied by Tom Wagner along with the seeds: : "''I have a broad spectrum collection of fruit shapes and colors in my Casady's Folly lines. The stripes are more zig-zag than [[Green Zebra]] and they come in yellows, reds, greens, browns, and tri-colors. I think they would make a great addition to a catalog as a color/shape assortment.''" * First introduced in the Seed Savers 2010 Yearbook by Amy Goldman of NY (NY GO A). 0 Yearbook by Amy Goldman of NY (NY GO A).
