Cream Sausage Tomato
Grandpa's White Wax Tomato
Found in my grandfathers frozen seed collection many years after his death, this unique oblate white tomato w ith waxy skin was used as a display tomato in county fairs. That was because it will remain firm even a week after picking. H. Ralph Weaver acquired it sometime before 1932 and considered it one of the sweetest tomatoes in his collection. The 3-i nch diameter fruits can be served like fruit with raspberries or mangos, or converted into jam.
Great White Tomato
75 days. Large, 1-lb giant with creamy white fruit. This tomato is superbly wonderful. The flesh is so good and deliciously fruity, it reminds one of a mixture of fresh-cut pineapple, melon and guava. One of our favorite fresh-eating tomatoes! Fruit is smoother than most large beefsteak types, and yields can be very high. Introduced by Gleckler’s Seedsmen.
White Beauty or Snowball Tomato
80 days. Parchment-white tomatoes are extra smooth and beautiful. Renowned for their sweet, citrus taste that is richer and more complex than many white types. This variety is perfect for making a delicious white sauce or for eating fresh out of hand. In 1927 Isbell’s Seed Co., of Jackson, Michigan, said that this was the best white variety that they had ever grown. Some sources say it may have been introduced as early as 1850. This eight-ounce variety is a wonderful piece of American history that is just too great to be lost. Chefs and market gardeners, take notice!
White Currant Tomato
A favorite variety in our own garden! The fruit is tiny, barely an inch across, and creamy white, with skins having a pale yellow tint. One of the sweetest tomatoes we have ever grown, with superb flavor. The fruit grow in clusters, and the yield is huge! We have more than we can pick, right up to frost. Large vining plants. A perfect cherry for home and market gardeners. A wild type.
White Tomesol Tomato
80 days. An amazing heirloom that is bursting with fragrance and natural goodness that’s hard to beat. One of the best tomatoes we have tasted, being both sweet and rich. The cream colored fruit is beautiful, smooth and weighs about 8 ounces each. The vines set heavy yields of this rare treasure. It’s sure to become a favorite of gourmet growers.
