This grows well in the Midlands of the UK. Cultured in an unheated greenhouse, it fruited prolifically. Excellent tomato flavour (not at all acid) & juicy. Generous leaf production, height easily 3'. Fruit shaped like a slim lemon, maturing to a definite yellow. Prone to blossom end rot if you let it wilt (!) but the afflicted tip dries up & the rest of the fruit matures perfectly.

Hybridized by Tom Wagner. The correct name for this variety is Banana Cream. Cream Sausage is a renaming.

Cream Sausage is easy to grow in containers and fairly productive. Taste is about average for a "yellow" type tomato (the color is beige). Grows well in coastal N. Carolina. Makes for an interesting addition to salads.

80 days. Lycopersicon esculentum. Bushy plant produces high yields of creamy white to light yellow sausage shaped tomatoes. Tomatoes are very sweet. Excellent for making salsa or a yellow sauce.
