About White Queen

‘White Queen’ tomato was first itroduced to SSE Yearbook in 1995 by Carolyn Male, who recived seed from Craig LeHoullier. Craig obtained seed from the USDA, grew it out and liked it, as did Carolyn Male. Craig was trying to find out more about this variety and he researched it back to 1941 from the ‘Earl May Seed Co’. Some old seed catalogs and books says it was a Livingston release, but it is not correct information – the variety, that was introduced by Livingstone was ‘Golden Queen’ (1882), not ‘White Queen’.
‘White Queen’ is sometimes described as ‘the whitest and best tasting of the whites’. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants with high yield of large (about 8-12 oz. or more) beefsteak-type fruit, slightly flattened and ribbed shoulders. Some of the fully ripe fruit gets a pink blush or streaks on the blossom end. The taste is very good, sweet and juicy flesh with very nice smooth texture. Midseason, about 80 days from transplant.
