  • Considered to be a strain of Cherokee Purple. The fruits of Indian stripe are slightly smaller, lighter in color, and have more fruits per truss. The original seed came to Carolyn Male of NY from Donna Nelson, Texas, who found this variety growing in the garden of Clyde Burson, a neighbor of her relatives in south central AR. Mr. Burson has been growing this tomato for as long as he can remember.
  • In the area this variety was known as Indian Stripe or Indian Zebra. Carolyn Male chose 'Indian Stripe' for the name.
