Crystal White OP
Variété citée en 1943 dans le catalogue "Peter Henderson & Co" à
New York aux USA
avec le texte suivant : Pure Alabaster White as Tempting and as Delicious as it
With the development of this, the latest and most startling vegetable novelty that has been introduced in many years, we have completed the object of our aim and labors, which date back to the introduction of Henderson's Golden Ponderosa in 1914.
Crystal White possesses all of the merits and qualifications that have made Golden Ponderosa increasingly popular since its introduction. The character of its growth is quite similar in many respects to that variety. It is just as vigorous, and develops into a large sized plant with a plentiful supply of foliage, like a typical Ponderosa. The fruit is produced as freely and it is by far the most attractive that has ever been originated. The color is a lovely alabaster white that appeals to all who see it. There is no trace of red in this variety.
The firmness of Crystal White is due to its meatiness, which quality also characterizes its desirability for slicing.
Its flavor is all that can be desired; a mild full richness which appeals to all. furthermore, it is possible with this variety, for people who are allergic to tomato poisoning, to enjoy tomatoes to their heart's desire, without any effects. this is due to the fact that it contains less acid than any other variety..
