Mr. Stripey is an heirloom tomato with exceptional flavor and ornamental value. The vibrant yellow-orange fruit has varying bands of red and golden tiger striping. Mr. Stripey is also prized for its late blight resistance and uniformly smooth fruit that is not prone to catfacing. The vigorous indeterminate vines produce masses of yellow flowers that ripen anywhere from 80-85 days from planting. Each juicy slice of this tomato reminds you how good fresh tomatoes from the garden taste. 

Mr. Stripey Heirloom Beefsteak Tomato Plant

Plant tomatoes out in the garden after the nighttime temperatures are above 50 degrees F. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of full sun and well-draining soil that holds moisture well and is rich in macro and micronutrients. Applying 2-3 inches of organic compost or well-rotted steer manure will provide enough nutrition for tomato plants to get a good start. Provide new plants with a support or strings to climb; tie in or guide new growth to keep the plants from sprawling on the ground. Indeterminate types will provide fruit continuously from late July to the first frost in fall.

Growing Mr. Stripey Heirloom Beefsteak Tomato Plant

Mr. Stripey is a late-season heirloom that begins to fruit 80 days after transplanting. The plants can be grown in a greenhouse or other covered hoop house to allow an earlier start in the spring and later harvesting in the fall. 

Tomatoes can also be grown in large barrels and containers. Use at least a 5-gallon bucket or pot with a 12-inch diameter for each tomato plant. Ensure there is enough drainage in the bottom, and use a potting mix with perlite or vermiculite to increase drainage. Watering will be needed daily once plants begin to develop fruit. Let the top 1-2 inches of potting soil dry out, and water until it comes out the bottom of the container.

Watering Mr. Stripey Tomato

Tomatoes have very deep root systems and can be fairly drought resistant. Provide 1 inch of water a week if there is no natural rainfall. Drip irrigation and soaker hoses are perfect for watering since they keep excess moisture off the leaves. Tomatoes become susceptible to molds and fungal diseases when the leaves are wet. 

Feeding Mr. Stripey Tomato

Mix a granular slow-release fertilizer for tomatoes or roses into the soil before planting. Apply a liquid seaweed or fish emulsion every two weeks until the first fruit appears.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
