This variety works for:
- Fresh eating
Store your tomatoes at room temperature. The flavor and texture of tomatoes suffer when the fruit is chilled.
Heirloom tomatoes are bred for their flavor and simple preparation best allows that intense flavor to shine through. Tomatoes can be sliced and drizzled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper or layer slices with basil and mozzarella for a Caprese salad.
Roasted tomatoes have a richer, concentrated flavor.
There are hundreds of salsa recipes to try and most are dramatically improved with the use of heirloom tomatoes. Tomatoes are also the main ingredient in Gazpacho, a cold soup that is perfect for summer.
Instructions - Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Tomatoes are sensitive to freezing temperatures, so wait to transplant outdoors until the soil is warm. Plant in full sun.
- Start Indoors: 6 weeks before last frost
- Germination: 7-14 Days
- Plant Outdoors: 24-36” Apart
- Support: Cage, stake, or trellis

A sublime beauty
by Peter G
Most tomatos earn their fame by being especially "rich" in one flavor component or another. Not this one. I grew it on a whim once and I was shocked by what I got. Nothing about it stands out in any way, other than the fact that perhaps it's balance of everything is so right, it could literally be the perfect tomato. It's a beautiful shade of bone white, and often has a pinkish blush on the blossom end, it yields good and has never shown to have bad habits or disease issues. They should change the name to King Sleeper... because it could quietly become your favorite variety.
A nice addition to your garden!
This is my 2nd year growing this variety. They are pretty, delicious, thin skin, juicy, sweet, with very low acidity and because of their color the animals are not as interested lol.
