Lovely big, globe fruit are a fabulous creamy-peach color, so unique and beautiful. These have a sweet tropical taste, with hints of melon. A lovely tomato with low yields: yes, low.

But who cares? It is so gorgeous!

This variety produced 2 (count them, TWO) tomatoes for me. They were good sized and rather pretty, but somewhat bland in taste. Won't try them again.

"Wonderful tasting, peach colored, white, with pink blushing or faint stripes. Color varies and so does the shape. Some to 1 1/2 lbs."
