Tomato, Fantome du Laos (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. White. 80 days. Indet.
3-4″ lobed, 6-8 oz tomatoes ripen to a very pale cream color. Flavor is very mild with a subtle sweetness. Good keeping qualities and very high yields. We have found it to yield well but late. A good variety to add to rainbow tomato dishes. White tomato types are generally lower in acidity so if that’s a problem for your digestion but you still want to eat a fresh tomato, Fantome du Laos is the variety for you. According to Tatiana’s TOMATObase, this variety is from Laos, “where there’s a tale saying that when ghosts are afoot, it will glow in the dark.” This rings true to us as we know there are many ghost stories in Southeast Asia, where the spirit world is taken very seriously, particularly in hill tribe communities. If you think your garden is haunted, this tomato may help you discover the truth!
