Tomato - Great White - Lycopersicon lycopersicum
Tender Annual Indeterminate Heirloom. Great White Tomatoes can weigh as much as 1 pound. Unlike most beefsteak type tomatoes, this white-skinned beefsteak has fewer grooves making it much nicer for slicing. Low acid levels give it a sweet, fruity flavor.
Soil and Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.
Planting and Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest when fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.
