(A) cousins, often green and striped, or have plenty of bumps and bruises, but are - "...or have plenty of bumps..." - not parallel

(B) cousins, often green and striped, or with plenty of bumps and bruises, although - "...or with plenty of bumps ..." - not parallel

(C) cousins, often green and striped, or they have plenty of bumps and bruises, although they are - "...or they have plenty of bumps..." not parallel

(D) cousins; they are often green and striped, or with plenty of bumps and bruises, although - "or with plenty of bumps " - not parallel

(E) cousins; they are often green and striped, or have plenty of bumps and bruises, but they are - "they are ... green and striped or (they) have ...." - parallel

The only doubt I have concerning (D) and (E) is reference of pronoun "they" after semicolon. Any ideas?

ABC are incomplete sentences.

DE seperate the two clauses into two indepedent thoughts, etc...

I prefer E. D I dont think with is appropriate here, I think we need have here.

A, B and C are out because a semicolumn is needed.
E sounds better than D because of logic ... heirloom totatoes don't look appetizing but they are more flavorful.
