Isis Candy

These are great tomatoes and one of our family favorites. although the first time I grew this, I didn’t understand that they were a reddish-orange when ripe so I waited and waited. Finally, I learned that they were supposed to be avmarbled color and that they had a star on the bottom. Very pretty and yummy.

They are a marbled reddish color with a starburst on the underside. Sweet and fruity. Heavy yields of short trusses, in double rows, of 6 to 8 fruits each. Indeterminate, 70-80 days.

Italian Ice

Sugary sweet and bursting with juicy flavor, ‘Italian Ice’ is a summer picnic treat. Clusters of 1-1 1/2″ snack-sized fruits ripen from green to ivory white, becoming uniquely sweet and mild tasting. 

Chill a bowlful for a satisfying portable snack when the heat of the summer demands a cooling, melt-in-your-mouth treat.

Indeterminate, 65 days
