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.

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.

Review:

This was the last of 5 cherry varieties to ripen for me, and the flavor is just sour. Also seems to pick up every disease that came down the line. I won't be growing this one again.

Review:

Nice taste, and a much thicker skin than other yellow-skinned types. Produced fewer tomatoes, and later yield than typical cherry tomatoes, but produced well into autumn in an unheated greenhouse in england. Would recommend this particularly for extending the season in england.
