Gardeners' Notes:

Can't say enough about this variety. The taste is unlike any other cherry, and without question the best tasting yellow of any size tomato I've ever tried. Plants grow to quite a large size are are very full and bushy, not leggy at all.

In Littleton, MA two years ago, this plant was a heavy producer right up until frost, had astonishingly delicious tomato flavor, had no wilt or diseases, and the ripened fruit held well on the vine, with no spoilage, a few times when I couldn't pick it fast enough. The variety is rarely offered in local nurseries, though. (Verrill Farm in Concord had the first one I found but didn't offer it last year or this year).

These Snow White are my favorite tomatoes. This is my second year growing them. I, too, can stand by the plant and eat dozens at a time. They're so prolific that I keep a bowl of them on my kitchen counter and eat them every time I walk into the kitchen.

I start my seeds outdoors in spring. We had a very cool spring this year and I had poor germination. I have 2 of these plants in my yard. The deer ate the top half of one a couple of months ago, but the other is, I'm sure, at least 6 feet tall. Last year's were 6 footers, too.

I've grown this one from seed a for a few years. The tomatoes are the sweetest tasting cherry variety that I have ever had...Highly recommended. Big producer as well..

Very nice flavor. Sweet/fruity as some have described, but not bland. Pale yellow in my garden, not white for me at all.

A large, healthy plant that is highly productive. I had only one plant this year, it was planted in a shady spot at the end of my garden. I can't imagine it providing more fruit than it has but I bet it will when it gets full sun.

The fruit is similar in appearance to Snowberry or Lemon Drop, but each has a flavor of their own.

I'm not a big fan of tomatoes, but will stand at the plant and eat these as fast as I can pick them. To me, they have a slightly sweet, fruity flavor. I gave 2 of the plants that I started to my neighbor and they are hooked on them. The plants grew large, at least 4' tall and produced a lot of fruit.

I sent an order to Tomato Growers and in that order the Snow White Cherry tomatoe seed was included.I started from seed and after they had matured enough I planted them along with my other tomatoes.The two plants that went into my garden grew to quite impressive proportions,about 6 feet high and about 4 to 5 feet wide.They produced and are still producing fruit at mind boggling quantities.I have got rave reviews from those that I have shared my bounty with,so next year they will once again be a part of my tomato crop.
