Michael Pollan, AKA Mint Julip. This variety named after writer, journalist, and teacher, Michael Pollan, a man who has contributed greatly to our understanding and appreciation of plants, and by virtue of his contribution has enhanced the quality of all of our lives. Developed by Brad Gates at Wild Boar Farms…from an odd-shaped mutant of Green Zebra. Indeterminate plants, regular leaf plants produce 3-4″ long, pear-shaped fruit with slight pointy end that grow in loose clusters. Fruit color is green with vertical yellow stripes. Taste similar to green zebra, milder, sweeter and without the citrusy tang of Green Zebra. The odd branching of this variety makes it more difficult to tie/stake.
