The Great White tomato is typically considered the best and the biggest of the white tomato varieties, producing globe-shaped fruit that can weigh up to two pounds. When ripe, these cream-colored tomatoes generally have a yellowish hue on the blossom end, and pale yellow, meaty flesh inside. Test the ripeness of these tomatoes by pressing them gently, as the flesh should yield slightly under pressure when they are ripe. Great White tomatoes have very few seeds and are low in acid, and they are known for being one of the tastiest varieties because of their delightfully sweet melon-like flavor with notes of guava. The indeterminate plants of Great White tomatoes are extremely productive, and also extremely hardy as they have a great amount of foliage that protects against sunscald. Great White is an excellent tomato variety for growing in hot climates because it is both drought and crack resistant.
