    They are called Mister Strippy?

    Anyone ever grow these.

    I start 90% of my plants from seed and grow out in a green house. Just for some reason it is nature to me to put in a ground garden each year.

    I was walking around the Home Depot. I was checkingout the plants they had to offer and seen this Mister Stripy. It is a Yellow tomaetoe with red stripes.

    I had to pick up some to see what they do.

    Actually, you may find that it's a red tomato with yellow stripes! Give it plenty of room since it is a rather aggressive indeterminate. I did grow it last year and found it to be a good mild beefsteak type. Production wasn't really great but they were also in some of my poorest soil. I'd definitely grow it again this year were it not for so many others to try. That was one of the selections on my 2005 seed offer and was quite popular between the two forums involved.
