What are the pros? Productive, lovely salsa
What are the cons? Just fair disease resistance
Ivory Egg is a lovely light yellow, delicious, and very productive tomato--that lends itself to a gorgeous-fun-superb-tasting salsa.
Each year on my west central Missouri farm, I grow about 35 varieties of tomatoes, selecting for flavor, plant health, and attractiveness. Of the 18 new-to-me varieties (several from Baker’s Creek) I tried this year, Ivory Egg was a star. Flavor: very good. Health: above average (growth vigor: exceptional; production: superior; disease-resistance: fair). Attractiveness: superior.
Along with a few other white-yellow varieties, we slow-cooked over two days a thick yellow salsa--using purple onions, red and green peppers, green cilantro, and lime juice. I’d share if I could. Don’t know if it was lovely and delicious or delicious and lovely.
The only minus for me with Ivory Egg was just fair disease resistance. Next year (said every year), I hope to be more timely with neem oil and foliar fish applications.
