Meet Mr. Stripey, one of my favorite tomatoes. I plant lots of different tomatoes every year, but this is the first time in 10 years that I have been able to find a Mr. Stripey.
I was vegetable plant shopping with my boys (who were 12 and 15 at the time) when we spotted this plant, and knew we had to give it a try.
There are two different kinds - the one I grow is a beefsteak. The fruit in the photo is 6 inches across. They're sweet and beautiful! Big, yellow tomatoes with red vertical stripes on the outside. When you cut them, they look like they've been tie-dyed.
What a delicious 'mater! I was so happy to spot them at Home Depot, and believe I bought the last one. If you'd like to try them, stop by the house and I'll pick a few for you.
