Unbelievable flavor!

 

Beautiful, creamy pale, yellowish-white fruits when sliced open the fragrant flesh reveals a pink blush swirled interior. Medium-sized fruits are fruity and intensely sweet.

 

I took 'White Queen' to an informal Tomato Testing event held at my local senior center in 2013. In a room full of diehard red tomato lovers - 'White Queen took SECOND PLACE!

 

HISTORY: PI 645048 / NSL 27262 Commercially introduced in 1941 by the Earl May Seed Co. of Shenandoah, Iowa. Eventually they fell into obscurity, but thankfully some were donated in 1963 for preservation to the USDA research station in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Some decades later, tomato guru Craig Lehoullier got a sample of seeds from the USDA, then shared them with another tomato guru, microbiologist Dr. Carolyn Male, and in 1995 Dr. Male re-introduced 'White Queen' to the world through the Seed Savers Exchange Yearbook.
