Gardeners' Notes:

Positive CaliforniaGuy On Jul 19, 2014, CaliforniaGuy from Lakewood, CA wrote:

The bush in my yard is pretty productive and makes good looking tomatoes. It seems hardy so far. The fruit is a little on the mild side for my personal liking, but the flavor is good, with a little zing that shows up in the aftertaste. Good texture, not too dry, nor too wet and runny. Not bad, I'd recommend giving it a try.

Beautiful tomato. Fantastic taste. Not as productive for me as others have reported. I start many tomatoes every year and either give them away or support a fund raiser by selling them. This is my most requested large tomato.

Fairly productive with good taste. Catfaced slightly more than average but otherwise very satisfied with this tomato.

Excellent taste and production of 5-10 oz fruits. Vigorous plant. Will definitely grow next year.

Chocolate Stripes was awesome! It produced a lot in less than good conditions, and the flavor was excellent, sweet and rich. The plants were very vigorous. I will grow this variety again.

Developed by John Siegel of Covington, Ohio this is a very attractive bicolor tomato. A cross between a Schimmeig Creg and a pink beefsteak. It has the attractiveness of the SC but far more flavor and larger size. This was a really good beautiful tomato.
