Indian stripe is originally from South Arkansas and had been known for years as “Indian Zebra” by it’s original grower, Clyde Burson. Mr. Burson was nice enough to share his personal seeds with others and along the way the name became Indian Stripe. We are actually glad for the name change since just about any tomato with a stripe has “zebra” stuck in the name. For some reason it has also been erroneously reported that this tomato is just a variation of Cherokee Purple. This is not so. I grow both and they have nothing in common except the gf and fs genes. Indian Stripe is outstanding in flavor and will soon become one that is on everyone’s favorites list.
