THIS DELICIOUS TOMATO IS A MEDIUM SIZED CHERRY TOMATO WITH THE TRUE TOMATO FLAVOUR! IT’S PROLIFIC SO SHARE THEM AROUND! NOT LIKELY TO BE ATTACKED BY BIRDS/RATS/MICE ETC AS THEY DON’T SEEM TO RECOGNISE THE COLOUR AS RIPE.

They ripen from green through to white and depending on soils and sun can mature to a pale yellow, and that ivory-cream colour persists throughout the interior flesh. They are deliciously sweet and juicy without being sugary, and notes of citrus and pineapple balance their flavour. The compact indeterminate plants grow an average of four to six feet tall, and are highly productive throughout the season.

Their pale colour earned them their name, which is appropriately pure and sweet although they actually turn more of a creamy yellow colour when fully mature. They offer far more of a concentrated tomato flavour than most other white varieties.

Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, and they contain good amounts of vitamin B and vitamin A. They are a good source of iron and calcium, and also contain decent amounts of phosphorus, sulphur, and potassium.

These cherry tomatoes are great for snacking, or as an addition to fresh salads. They are sweet and delicious on their own, but can also be enhanced by fresh herbs and spices, such as basil, cilantro, chives, dill, garlic, mint, paprika, rosemary, oregano, parsley, thyme, and tarragon. Store tomatoes at room temperature until ripe, after which refrigeration can slow the process of decay.

Cherry tomatoes were the first tomato species to be domesticated. They are descendants of the wild tomato, which traces back millions of years the coastal regions of South America. However, archaeological evidence suggests that cherry tomatoes were first cultivated further north in Central America by the Aztecs and Incas as early as 700 AD. The tomato was introduced to Spain in the 16th century by the conquistadors and soon spread throughout Europe, however it wasn’t until the mid 1800’s that the tomato became widespread.

This cherry tomato was developed by Joe Bratka, famous tomato collector from New Jersey who has bred several other varieties including the popular candy cherry tomato.
