White Queen

Known as the whitest and best tasting of the whites, it produces nice sized, 8-12 oz and up, beefsteak fruit with ribbed shoulders. Most of the other whites globes and beefsteaks are know for their lack of flavor but I’ll keep searching for more good white ones.

Fruit will sometime have a slight pink blush or streaks on the blossom end, very pretty. Usually they darken a little to creamy yellow when ripe. They are sweet and juicy with a well balanced flavor and very nice smooth texture. Fruit have very little cracking. Plants are strong and productive.


Craig LeHoullier obtained seed from the USDA, gave some to Carolyn Male and they both grew it out and liked it. Carolyn made seed available through SSE in 1995. Craig has researched it back to 1941 from the Earl May Seed Co. There is information out there in seed catalogs and books that indicate it was a Livingston release. This is incorrect. Golden Queen, not White Queen, was released by Livingston in 1882.
