Originated in 1890 by Elbert S. Carman, it was known then as White Peach. From Dennis Schlicht. Named after the Wapsipinicon River in Northeast Iowa. First offered in the Seed Savers 1996 Yearbook by Jeff Nekola of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Similar to Peche Jaune. Indeterminate, regular-leaf wispy, tomato plants that yield a tremendous amount (thousands) of 1 1/2 to 2-inch, delicate, fuzzy-like-a-peach skin, pale-yellow (with tinges of pink), juicy, tomatoes with wonderful, slightly-spicy, very fruity-sweet flavors. Harvest is good all the way to frost. A novelty tomato that is sooo sweet, it begs for eating right off the vine. Rare seeds. A wonderful tomato experience for chefs and tomato lovers. They won’t be able to keep from smiling after tasting this!
