Tomato 'Chocolate Stripes'

Tomato 'Chocolate Stripes' is one of the neatest-looking striped tomatoes. The mahogany-red fruits have olive-green stripes and a deep red interior. The flavor is rich, sweet and earthy. Weighs 8-10 ounces.

With a clever name, good looks and excellent flavor, Tomato 'Chocolate Stripes' is destined to be a classic. Developed by John Siegel of Covington, Ohio, and introduced to Seed Savers Exchange by Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio in 2007.

Sowing Tomato 'Chocolate Stripes' Seeds

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Sow 1/8" deep. Place the pots in a warm spot to speed germination. The most common causes of poor germination are cold temperatures and burying the seeds too deeply.

Transplant outside when all danger of frost is past. Bury the stem up to the first set of true leaves (tomatoes root along the stem). Full sun. Spacing 30-36". Provide a large tomato cage for support.
