1. Original Name: Livingston’s Honor Bright. Also known as Honor Bright or Lutescent.
2. History: An old heirloom variety originating from the USA. First found in the field of Stone tomatoes as early as in 1894. Stabilized by Alexander W. Livingston in 1897 and introduced under the name of Honor Bright in the Livingston’s Seed Catalog of the same year.
3. Plant Specifications: Mid-season. A good choice for outdoors and a greenhouse. Tall bush, indeterminate, growing up to 6 feet (180 cm) tall. Thick stem, regular leaf. Regular truss, 4-6 fruits per truss.
Special attention should be paid to the unique color of its leaves. Just a few varieties have leaves of the same color being light-green with yellow spots. A lot of gardeners may think it to be a symptom of a tomato disease but it is wrong to think so because this is a particular feature of this exotic variety. You just need to wait a little to see the leaves developing in a normal way and bushes producing fruits. We can say the same about the color of its fruits. They are of a perfect white color at the mature-green stage and are white instead of green. The fruits mature to yellow and orange and later to red.
4. Training Instructions: It is recommended to train the bush to two main stems, and staking and pruning are a must.
5. Shape and Weight: Round beefsteak fruits rather looking like apples. Weight: 3.5-5.3 oz. (100-150 g).
6. Color: White at the mature-green stage. The fruits mature to orange and later to red.
7. Flavor Profile: Sweet and slightly tart. A typical taste of red tomatoes. The flesh is juicy and has a nice flavor.
8. Culinary Use: A good choice for those who like common red tomatoes. Perfect when served with bacon and fresh homemade bread.
