Default STRIPED tomato varieties bred by:(Tom Wagner)

I am posting this as a STICKY since I have moderator duties and the topic is important to me and maybe to new, future, and entrenched readers on this forum.

Nearly 50 years of tomato breeding work with the supposed gs gene (Green Stripe) has brought forth countless numbers of beautifully striped tomato varieties. The starter gene came presented itself to from a partially expressed tomato clone found in a increase plot of the Ames, Iowa tomato collection....before it moved to the Geneva, NY location. Was it a mutation? Was it related to the much older variety Tigerella? I gave up using Tigerella thirty years ago since it was, frankly, inferior.

I noticed very early that my selection of the so-called gs gene was undergoing some radical phenotypic expression. The early varieties out of breeding work with the striped gene....Green Zebra, Elberta Girl, Banana Legs (Banana Fingers) Schimmeig Stoo, Schimmeig Creg, Green Nails, Brown Derby(striped version) Green Bell Pepper, and a few others started quite a "diaspora" especially with my issuance of my TATER MATER SEED catalogs starting with the 1983 premiere.

I kept breeding more and more striped tomatoes since 1983 and there is no way I can count all of them. Quite humbly, I can't explain the genetics of the gs gene. I am more of an artist than a geneticist! I save seed from what I like, and cannot profess to know everything that shows up in the progenies of my breeding experiments. I get stripes, streaks, dots, wavy zig-zag lines, dapples, shoulder stripes, odd colors of stripes, an so on.

Many folks have come forth with all kinds of stripes tomatoes that were accidental crosses, intentional crosses or later descendants of some of my earliess OP lines. The Striped Roman, Black Zebra, Copia, and Blush.....are but a few.

I will add to this list as I get time. I picked out a select group that shows a huge diversity. Enjoy!

Blauer Punkt is a new selection for me via the most interesting of 200 segregating plants in Austria. I left the seed in Vienna four years ago and this is a single plant selection made out of four plants at the Zanger Farm greenhouse in Portland, OR.

Blauer Punkt means Blue Dot in German. Did you see the blue dots? The dots look at bit different when the fruits ripen. The dot as a substitute for stripes is the point of interest for me.

That three-way hybrid is similar to what I had in my mind's eye for a cherry when I started crossing Dr. Carolyn to different striped lines. Very nice.

Any way to fix the links so they embed in the post?

Yes, fix the [/IMG] part, so it's not part of the "link".

Only Tom or one of the global mods can do that though....

There are still a few of us (maybe I am the last?) who use a dial-up connection. Embedded photos require too much time to download, and make threads such as this impractical (impossible) to view. As an alternative, please consider going to "Advanced" -> "Manage Attachments", and then attach a click-able thumbnail photo.

Lee, all are clickable to me and some others who they were also clickable to, and if I delete the IMG part I'm not sure what will happen, so I'm not going to do it.

It's Tom's post so if he does it ASAP he can take any possible consequences,not me.

May be Chris would like to see something like this. Leave the language and enjoy the pictures :
http://tomodori.com/forum/topic11484-630.html#p244547


Let me add that Tom Wagner has lots of fans in France (tomatoes and potatoes) and they would like some information on taste.

Actually, I mispoke.... get rid of the link part, and they will all show inline. That's what the img tags do with the link.
Of course, that will make it challenging for the dial up folks.

Attaching the photos is another way, but can take a lot of work for many pictures such as this....

I just have to tell you that seeing these two (Abracazebra and Go Pack) was like seeing a double rainbow for me. Dutch

I was away from home for a few days and since picking tomatoes and potato berries and trying to extract seed as fast as possible. I am a novice at posting pictures as I use Imgur almost exclusively and not always successfully at that. I appreciate what the Tomadori site did. Here is another attempt at getting the pictures to be more easily seen. I don't have a clue what dial ups see.

I just don't have enough time to offer flavor descriptions...maybe when I list the seed later on this year.
