This clear-skinned strain showed up in my garden and a couple others in 2009.
It has the spicy flavor of the very best green-when-ripe tomatoes. They are picked when just slightly soft to the touch. The plant is very healthy and productive here.

Reportedly sweeter than Green Doctor's. Seeds can be purchased from Glecklers Seedmen.

I hesitate to post this, since I obtained the seed in a swap and there is a chance it may not be a true GDF, but I am disappointed in the result. The plant had dozens of cherry tomatoes by July but the clear skin meant I had no way of judging when they are ripe! Here it is October, and they still taste unripe and unpleasant. They do have the advantage that the chipmuks who feast on my red tomatoes ignore them.
