GREAT WHITE – (I) - Catalog #12
Leaf Type - Regular
A large white beefsteak heirloom with a wonderfully sweet almost melon-like flavor. Beautiful, large white beefsteak tomato with sweet flavor and lots of juice. Fruit is larger than that of White Beauty. Vigorous plants have heavy foliage that provides good protection against sunscald on the fruit. 85 days.
SIMPLY TOMATOES NOTES:
These tomatoes have also become somewhat a victim of the very strange weather patterns of the summer 09 growing season. As of September 5, 2009 we have picked about seven tomatoes, that have a somewhat weather beaten look. But, that being said, they do taste great. They are a very mild melony flavor and in my opinion should not be mixed with tomatoes that are bold or robust.
