History

  • An open-pollinated variety, developed by Jeff Dawson of Sebastopol, California, from a natural cross of Green Zebra. Jeff offered it commercially in 2000 through his seed company, Grandview Farms Tomato Seeds.
  • Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois (IL LO N) and Steve Strickler (OH ST S), who lived in Dayton, Ohio at that time, both obtained the seed from Jeff Dawson and offered it in the SSE 2001 Yearbook. Interestingly, none of them mentioned the taste in their first listings, which does not praise this tomato.
