With Great White Beefsteak as one its parents, you know this is good! Slightly larger than a golf ball, fruits are produced in profusion. Beautiful, creamy yellow fruits with blue (anthocyanin) shoulders are mild and sweet with a balanced bite.
HISTORY: “Great White Blue” is a segregate of a cross of Great White Beefsteak x OSU P20 made by Stéphane Marier, Canadian breeder from Quebec, and owner of Solana Seeds. According to Stéphane, Reinhard Kraft received F1 seeds and began the grow out process, also sharing seeds with other breeders and growers along the way. Because of this, there are a number of segregates available from different growers. Some of the names are similar, as in “Great White Blues,” versus “Great White Blue.” The sizes and shapes also vary somewhat, even within the supposed same segregate, from more oblate beefsteaks to more globe-shaped salads.
The plants I am offering are rounded saladettes.
