Days to Maturity: 70 Days

Life Cycle: Annual

Special Considerations: Eggplants require lots of warmth during the growing season however too much heat can cause blossom abortion. Utilizing low-tunnels before flowering can help increase plant growth without blossom damage. Plastic mulches and greenhouses are also beneficial in warming the soil and extending the growing season. Fruit thinning may also be required as eggplants tend to overset on the plant leading to exposed fruit (sunscald), poor airflow (disease issues) and malformed/smaller fruits.

ContentLarge conical short-necked light yellow and green fruit, some russeting. Flesh is light yellow, fine-textured, sweet, aromatic and juicy. Fruit can be stored well into winter! Leading fresh commercial variety. Ripens in mid-September, requires cross-pollination. A true heritage tree. Introduced in France prior to 1800. Grafted onto an "Old Home x Farmingdale" 87 (OHxF 87) rootstock. Semi-dwarfing (60-70% of standard). Vigorous and more precocious than other OHxF series; induces flowering earlier in maturity. May have some resistance to blight. Does well when paired with Anjou. 1/2" caliper bareroot or #5 potted  

Big yellow-white fruits with a mild flavour.

There are a number of heirloom "white" tomatoes, and Great White is the best we have seen. The 12+ oz. fruit is meaty with few seeds, a mild non-acid flavour, and creamy texture. The medium-tall plants are less viny and mature earlier than other "whites." Soft skins may crack; harvest before fully ripe to avoid splitting.

Indeterminate. Beefsteak. Heirloom.
