Tomato ‘Indian Stripe’

Tomato on Foodista

85 days, indeterminate — Similar to ‘Cherokee Purple’, very productive, very good flavor.  It is productive, a compact indeterminate plant, fruits are oblate, a bit smaller than ‘Cherokee Purple’, shoulders not as dark, but color similarly dusky rose with some occasional green striping.  Flavor is best when fully ripe. ~ Victory Seeds

Since the neighborhood squirrels love tomatoes as much as I do, I pick my tomatoes when they turn color, letting them ripen perfectly on the counter.

  1. Gorgeous tomatoes. I’m so glad I stumbled across your site; my husband and I are entertaining thoughts of moving to the Bay Area but didn’t know if we could continue our gardening addiction, with the fog and all. Glad to see that it is indeed possible, even heat-loving plants like tomatoes! Am now following you on Twitter and look forward to reading more fabulous posts.

  2. Thank you, Connie! There are varieties well-suited for the fog belt, I believe =). Some parts of the Bay Area do not get fog at all. Come on over! You’ll love it here.
