Cherry Tomato Snow White Snow White tomatoes are a medium-large sized variety of cherry tomato weighing approximately one to two ounces per fruit. They ripen from green to a pale yellow, and that ivory-cream color persists throughout the interior flesh. They are deliciously sweet and juicy without being sugary, and notes of citrus and pineapple balance their flavor. The compact indeterminate plants grow an average of four to six feet tall, and are highly productive throughout the season. Planting instructions: If you’re planting seeds, you’ll want to start your seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the average last spring frost date. Select a site with full sun and well-drained soil. For northern regions, it is VERY important that your site receives at least 6 hours of daily sunlight. For southern regions, light afternoon shade will help tomatoes survive and thrive. Two weeks before transplanting seedlings outdoors, dig soil to about 1 foot deep and mix in aged manure or compost. Harden off transplants for a week before planting in the garden. Set transplants outdoors in the shade for a couple of hours the first day. Gradually increase the amount of time your plants are outside each day to include some direct sunlight. Transplant after last spring frost when the soil is warm. Place tomato stakes or cages in the soil at the time of planting. Plant transplants about 2 feet apart. Pinch off a few of the lower branches on transplants, and plant the root ball deep enough so that the remaining lowest leaves are just above the surface of the soil. If your transplants are leggy you can remedy this by burying up to ? of the plant including the lower sets of leaves. Tomato stems have the ability to grow roots from the buried stems.
