Rose Beauty

This is a pretty pale yellow/cream tomato that may or may not blush pink on the blossom end. The Rose in the name comes from the family that grew it- not the color. 

Fruit are nice and large, usually 1-1 ½ lb, juicy, and have a nice flavor that is not bland like some pale ones. The plant is vigorous and production is good, even in the heat.

Story:

From Tatiana’s TOMATObase:

  • A family heirloom from Kentucky. It was grown by Dale Rose's family on Happy Top Mountain on the Estill/Jackson County line in Kentucky, in the late 1920's / early 1930's. Original seed from Dale Rose of Richmond, Kentucky.
  • First offered in the Seed Savers 2001 Yearbook by Austin Isaacs, Berea, Kentucky (KY IS A2).
  • First commercially offered by Marianna's Heirloom Seeds in 2008.

Yes, there really is a Happy Top Mountain – and a Happy Top Road on top of it. I love the name. icon_smile.gif Here is a link to a map of that area.
