Marc - I've been waiting all summer for this post!

My white tomato seedlings bit the dust in a wind versus seedling tragedy so I never got to grow my "white wonders".

These things look so weird I just don't know if I can do it! I have this aversion to the white-ish part of the inside of red tomatoes which is usually only present when they are not fully ripe. Therefore I tend to only eat the ends of the grocery store tomatoes.(I get this from my father) And these white tomatoes remind me of an entire tomato made of the part that I hate.

Thanks for sharing! These are really cool lookin.

What color would a spaghetti sauce end up being if you used the whitest ones you grew?

Too cool for words. If they tasted like tomatoes, I might give it a try. Very interesting!


I grew a white heirloom cherry tomato this year called White Rabbit and it was quite astonishing. Huge crop of small pale creamy yellow fruit that did not taste like tomatoes really they were deliciously exotic and fruity. Lovely in salads and kids love them - better than sweets said my friends little boy.

You grow so many kinds of awesome tomatoes. I have to grow most of mine inside... but someday I'm going to do something like this.

You're a great inspiration!

How does the taste compare on those white ones?

I am so lucky to have stubbled up your site. You have an amazing garden.

I've been garden blog surfing.
I guess that's what you call it.
Anyway came across your blog.

We love heirloom tomatoes !!
No comparison to those hybrids.
Never grew "white tomesol".
Have to check back with you later.

Fascinating stuff! There are just so many thousands of tomato varieties out there, it's great to see others trying them for me! Taste is paramount in my book. What do the black ones taste like?

I planted Great White tomatoes this year; live in the Midwest. The flower buds however are falling off and there is not visible fruit on the plant. The foliage looks healthy; but no fruit. I would appreciate any help you can offer.


I've never seen anything like those white tomatoes before! Are they more cold-tolerant than red varieties, or do they like the same conditions? *curious*
