Introduced by A Livingston, USA. Very original variety because of its colour evolution: first light green then waxy white.
This variety was introduced in the USA in 1897, under the name of "Honor Bright", by Alexander Livingston who was the great breeder of tomato varieties in the USA during the 19th century. Very original variety because of its colour evolution: first light green, then waxy white, then lemon yellow, then evolving to a bright red, before turning orange.
Fruit of medium size, globular and ribbed at the top, gathered in clusters of 3 to 5 units that ripen together. Great storage capacity, if picked before full ripeness, from one to four weeks in a cool place.
Tender and melting flesh, excellent flavour.
