Is it a green tomato with red stripes or a red tomato with green stripes? What am I referring to? It's 'Girl Girl's Weird Thing' tomato!
When I first spotted this tomato, I was looking for something fun, eye-catching and large. The gorgeous colours immediately caught my eye and the unusual name sealed the deal! This tomato did not disappoint.
Originally discovered as a variant of 'Green Zebra' by Jessica Hughes in Canada, she ended up naming it 'Girl Girl's Weird Thing' after her dog "Girl Girl" who would steal tomatoes and eat them.
The flesh of this tomato is reddish-purple. It makes a wonderful slicing tomato, is great on a sandwich, and is also delicious eaten raw. The flavour is sweet, yet mild. Fruits grow to a size of approximately 14 oz, coming in just under 1 pound.
Plants are indeterminate and require good staking to support tall growing vines.
Start seeds indoors at least 6 - 8 weeks before the final frost date. Please refer to my Seed Starting Calculator for specific planting dates for your area.
Transplant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed. Space plants a minimum of 2 to 3 feet apart, depending on how well plants are staked. Stay on top of removing suckers.
Tomatoes grow best in full sun.
Days to Maturity: 70 to 80
Packet: 15 seeds

Shipping is calculated at the time of order and is based on the number of seed packets per order. All packages are shipped through Canada Post, and pricing for packages containing seeds are the same for addresses across Canada.
Larger items are calculated by weight and destination and will vary by province.
US seed orders are made at the buyer’s own risk, and we cannot guarantee delivery. We will receive and ship orders but cannot account for the actions of foreign customs, which is the reason for this non-guarantee. Unfortunately, I do not offer phytosanitary certificates, so if the seeds are confiscated or destroyed at the border, your order will not be refunded or reissued.
Non-seed orders are calculated by weight and destination and vary by state.
We cannot ship orders outside of North America.
