“Tennessee Suited” is a 6-10 ounce smooth oblate purple fruit with vertical green stripes (clear skinned black with stripes), regular leaf dwarf, very good yield, very good flavor. After one of the Alaska volunteers said she saw a striped tomato late in her Alaska season, I was sent some seeds and found it the next season here in Tennessee. We did some selections and growouts, and now, it is available to the public. It is named after the place where it thrived (Tennessee) and the two people who believed in it. Enjoy this great tasting and colorful new variety. Does well in containers.

In the words of Craig Lehoullier (Project co-organizer): “This variety originated from a cross between Pink Berkeley Tie Dye and Rosella Purple made by Patrina Nuske Small in 2009 and named Tidy. Tennessee Suited was selected and named by Ted Maiden. The vigorous regular leaf dwarf plants produce plenty of smooth oblate purple (clear skinned black) tomatoes with distinct, attractive vertical green stripes, ranging between 6-10 ounces. The flavor is intense, well balanced and delicious. Involved – Patrina Nuske Small, Craig LeHoullier, Ted Maiden, Sue Bailey, Bill Yoder, and Doug Frank.”
