Default Chocolate Stripes

Been growing Chocolate Stripes for years. It is ONE of my top 10 favorites for our FL winter climate. The warmer the weather, the darker the stripes are. I love the green gel inside as well makes for a pretty cut tomato. It does have an "earthy" taste to it and very juicy and FULL of seeds. I have only had some BER early on this tomato but not many diseases as others have posted. The plant did outgrow the BER later in season. Had some tomatoes close to 1lb this season. I have lots of seeds saved if anyone would like to try them.
