TOMATO BANANA LEGS PROLIFIC LIGHTLY STRIPED LOW ACID SWEET YELLOW $1.40

Besides its bright yellow colour, the plant’s next most striking feature is its intricate leaves. ‘Banana Legs’ tomatoes are elongated and cylindrical fruits that end with an offset, almost blunt tip, that gives this yellow tomato its ‘banana’ shape.  ‘Banana Legs’ tomatoes begin to ripen, take on a sunny yellow colour and form light yellow stripes. The fruits reach an average weight of about 80 grams and grow to about 10cm long. The fruit itself contains only a few seeds.

‘Banana Legs’ tomatoes taste similar to most yellow varieties: mild, sweet and fruity with little to hardly any acidity.

The tomato ‘Banana Legs’ was first bred in the US by John Swenson. To successfully breed this yellow tomato variety, Swenson mixed unnamed crosses from the famous tomato breeder Tom Wagner, who himself is responsible for cultivating the ‘ Green Zebra ’ tomato. The ‘Banana Legs’ tomato plant is a bush (determinate) tomato that only reaches around 100 to 120cm in height.
