2011 Review. Not a great tomato year in my area. Cool & rainy May, ok June & VERY hot & dry July
Late, indeterminate, white oblate tomato, Heirloom introduced by the Earl May Seed Co. in 1941
Planted: 2 plants from a trade set out June 7th with a bit of Septoria.
First fruit set: June 22nd.
Height: Average height, about 5-6′.
First Ripe Fruit: August 10th. Late season.
Yields: Prolific. One of the best producers of the year.
Uses: A fun sauce tomato. I made “White Hot Salsa” with this tomato & some white Habaneros. Yum. Sliced fresh it has a sweet flavour with no tang. I like tang. It had a very nice texture & the colour is phenomenal!
Taste: Decent for sauce/salsa. Good fresh eating.
Overall: Most of the fruit were ribbed in my garden & I love the look of the ribbed heirlooms. Awesome colour & fun to try recipes with. A hit with people who haven’t seen a white (actually cream) tomato. Grow it again!
Don’t forget – my taste buds are different from yours, as is my weather, soil, growing habits etc. You may agree or disagree with my review. Grow it yourself & tell me if you like it (:
