There is nothing dainty about this indeterminate tomato: ‘Faelan’s First Snow’ has stout stems; big, white-variegated leaves; large flowers; and huge, deep pinkish red fruits. The flavor is exactly what you expect from a beefsteak-type tomato, and one slice was enough to make a whole sandwich. (My mouth is watering as I write this, remembering the many simple summer meals I enjoyed from this tomato!) In my garden, the initial picking provided abundant fruits for nearly a month, then the plants took a bit of a break for a few weeks before setting more flowers and somewhat smaller but still delicious fruit in September. As with other variegated tomatoes, the markings on the stems and leaves were most noticeable for the first two months or so, turning all green when summer heat really set in, with a bit of leaf variegation reappearing in fall.
Open-pollinated, and I do grow other tomatoes, but these seeds are from the first few fruits to form, and I’m pretty sure this was the only tomato that was flowering at the time, so I think the likelihood of any crossing is low. Full sun. Annual.
Harvested in August 2020. At least 6 seeds.
