I tried growing this last year in Portland, OR. Unfortunately we had a very short summer (2 months) and it wasn't as hot as normal. I assume the lack of heat affected the flavor because I've read good things about this variety, but ours tasted like water- completely flavorless. It produced very well though. We got lots of White Queen tomatoes that we ended up composting. Maybe it's a better plant for areas with longer, hotter summers?

My favorite white tomato. It has very good flavor - sweet but still tomatoey. It produces well, even in hot and humid weather. I grow it every year because it's so dependable.
