Product Description

The Italian Ice tomato is small and perfectly round, averaging one inch in diameter and weighing one ounce. It is unique in that it ripens from a green to lemony-white colors when fully mature. The fruits with more sun exposure develop a more yellow-toned skin, while those that ripen in the shade keep a white colour.

Its flesh is juicy, and its flavour is sugary sweet with low to moderate acid levels. The high-yielding indeterminate, or vining, plant continues to grow, set fruit, and ripen throughout the season until killed by frost, producing clusters of snack-sized fruits along vines up to five or six feet long with serrated or ruffled leaves.
