80 days, indeterminate, regular leaf. Very pale yellow/white fruit, 6-12oz each. Very mild flavour, but extremely high yield. 4lb per plant. I really grew this one for its keeping qualities, even with the mild flavour it's better then a store bought tomato! Very pretty fruit. I really liked the "ghost story" that came along with this one and was a big factor in me deciding to grow it. Did well even with our hot summers.

Year: 2009

Location: Nelson, BC, Canada
