65 days. Pale yellow cherries offer a burst of fresh, sweet flavor. They weigh about 1 oz each. This variety was named for our friend, Dr. Carolyn Male, who wrote the book 100 Heirloom Tomatoes. The plants are hardy and heavy producers of velvety-feeling fruit.

Not Very Good Flavor

What are the pros? Big, beautiful strong stem

What are the cons? The flavor was just not there.

Review:

The plant itself grew very big and beautiful. Waited and waited for tomato flowers to show up, then for tomatoes to start developing...all the while all my other tomatoes were already maturing. Finally some tomatoes started to show up and took soon long to ripen. Alas, the long wait was over....first bite....not very good taste, if any at all. Will never grow again. Too may other really great varieties to choose from.

What are the pros? Flavor and Endurance

What are the cons? none

Review:

We grew these for the first time last year. I grew them in raised beds and 5 gal buckets. The flavor was wonderful with balance being a little on the sweet side. What amazed me is that this plant refused to give up. I lost most of my tomatoes to what I believe was anthracnose and/or late blight, but Dr Carolyn not only survived, but continued to produce well into November (our zone changed to 8a last year). BTW, the roots were so vigorous that I moved the buckets from our patio to soil so that they could continue growing through the holes in the bottom and they went crazy. With our problem growing season last year, these out performed all my tomatoes including black cherries. I'm buying more for this year.

Very disappointing tomato

What are the pros? Healthy, disease resistant

What are the cons? late to ripen, bland flavor

Review:

I purchased this tomato plant from a local grower who claimed it was quick to mature in our climate. The plant itself grew vigorously and was disease resistant. Of the 8 tomato varieties I planted, these were the very last to ripen. The tomatoes were bland, somewhat sour and mealy. I consider this tomato a waste of garden space.

Review:

it might interest some of you looking at this variety to know that appeared in my garden from saved seeds of the variety Galina's Yellow, which is a pot leaf with exc gold cherry tomatoes from Siberia.Not only did I get this one but also plants with salmon, yellow, red and pink from the same F2 seeds. I sent seeds of this ivory one to Steve Draper b'c he was also seeing instability with Galina's Yellow and it was he who named it, More recently this variety gave green when ripe cherries called Green Doctors and then Green Doctors somehow morphed into perhaps a clear epidermis giving a frosted appearance and that version was named Green Doctors Frosted. I prefer three green when ripe cherries over all others and the three are Green Doctors or the "frosted version and also Green Zebra Cherry, not known to be related the the variety Green Zebra, but named in Germany b'c the expterior looks like Green Zebra and finally Verde Claro bred by Tom Wagner which also has a clear ep\\eidermis so also looks frosted, with no amber blush. Just a bit of background for those interested in histories of tomato varieties, as I am.

Review:

I've grown Dr. Carolyn for the last two years, and she's been a surprisingly good producer, despite being planted late. Plenty of pale yellow fruit with firm flesh and a better taste than I expected.
