Another one of Brad Gates tomatoes. This is his description from his seed selling site:

"Rare tomato seeds- Red Boar. Stunning red with gold stripes. Very aggressive grower and yielder.

Huge yields of medium red tomatoes with heavy gold striping. Looks like a red version of the green zebra. Grows over 10 feet tall in my yard every year..

All varieties I offer have come from crossed or mutated tomatoes that I have personally discovered amongst tens of thousands of heirloom tomato plants groing here in Northern California. They are a product of an extreme amount of time, work and luck."
