Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral dlnevins On Jul 23, 2006, dlnevins from Omaha, NE wrote:

The fruits are beautiful, and the flavor is nicely balanced and more complex than usual for a yellow tomato, but the plant has so far proven itself the blossom-end rot champion of my garden. This has been an unusually hot summer, though; the taste is nice enough that I may give the cultivar a second chance next year and see if it does better in a (hopefully) more typical growing season.

Oblate, smooth, relatively crack resistant medium sized fruit. Good flavor. Golden yellow fruits w/pink blush on blossom end. Seed source is important on this one -- look for the USDA strain.

Neutral Big_Red On Mar 9, 2005, Big_Red from Bethelridge, KY (Zone 6a) wrote:

Introduced in 1882. A 1918 catalog describes as, " 'Queen of all the Yellows.' Of superior flavor, it is solid, always smooth, entirely free from ridges, large in size, ripens early. Fine for slicing."

A 1933 catalog has a slightly different description. "Of superior flavor, solid, always smooth, large, ripens early. Rich golden yellow skin with a tinge of pink on the blossom side. Fine for slicing."
