That looks like a green zebra to me. I grew them a few years ago, they are really tasty but, didn't ripen until late October/early November.

thanks, but i know its not a green zebra... I actually have a plant of those in the back yard too, not that its doing too well tho....

this guy is about the size ofa tennis ball right now and when we get them at work hey are usually a little bigger than that too. Once it fully ripens I'll post more pics

That's interesting, it sure looks like a green zebra. You know, there are about (at least) 5 different types of zebra tomatoes so, I'm still going to put my money on a zebra tomatoe.

I guess time will tell.

getting close here
it's finally showing signs of ripening: its starting to get reddish and it has reached its final size (about the size of a baseball)
I'll add some more pics in a few days when it's ripe hehe

Next year my plan is to have the entire first part of my garden:

Green Zebras

Black Zebras


Russian Black Tomatoes.

And then, a year from now to make Black Tomatoe sauce and Green tomatoe sauce. I made 12 liters of just regular tomatoe sauce each with a few black tomatoes in them but, next year I want to make some nice colourful stuff.

I have grown this tomato for the last 4 years, I purchased a 4" plant at the Fullerton Monster Tomato Sale and it was labeled "Tigerella". Very prolific! Tons of tomatoes every year.
