Slightly flattened, ±1 lb. fruits ripen to a pale greenish-yellow with a slight pink blush that extends to the inside when they are fully mature. Superb, fruity sweet and slightly spicy flavor! Considered by many to be the finest-tasting green tomato. I have a customer that uses only this tomato for his special pesto. FRUITS ARE BEST PICKED BY FEEL, NOT SIGHT. WHEN THE FRUITS ARE SOFT(ISH) TO THE TOUCH, THEY ARE READY!
HISTORY: This variety comes from the preservation efforts of Ruby Arnold of Greeneville, Tennessee who passed away in 1997.
