THE INDIAN STRIPE IS PROBABLY A STRAIN OF CHEROKEE PURPLE. IT WAS NAMED BY CAROLYN MALE OF NY WHO GOT THE SEEDS FROM SOMEONE IN TEXAS. THE MAJOR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND THE CHEROKEE PURPLE IS THE SOMETIMES STRIPING WHICH IS MORE NOTICEABLE WHEN IT IS GROWING. IN ADDITION, THIS IS A LITTLE LIGHTER AND NOT AS BIG AS THE CHEROKEE PURPLE. ANOTHER THING IS THAT IT IS A GOOD COOL WEATHER TOMATO, WHICH MEANS YOU WILL NOT SEE THIS TOMATO UNTIL LATE AUGUST. LIKE THE CHEROKEE, IT IS SO GOOD FOR SAUCES, SANDWICHES, SALADS, AND SNACKING.
