White Wonder is an old variety. It is a reasonably good producer of white (imagine that!) tomatoes. The flavor is good, almost as good as any ordinary variety. Largish, medium-sized fruit is good when used on a plate sliced with other colors. Has not been difficult for me to grow although it did much better in the midwest than the south for me (stronger soils in Iowa!).
