Rare. Woolly Kate is one of the very few blue woolly type varieties. Seeds given to Gary Ibsen of TomatoFest in 2015 by Gary Cass from the Big Island of Hawaii, who has been working with this variety as part of a project working with L. hirsutum. Flavors tied to natural pest and disease resistance. Apparently the woolly types are from a mutation that was found in a field of Rutgers. Introduced commercially by TomatoFest in 2016. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produces abundant crops of 1″-1 1/2″, cocktail-sized, round, fruits with blue/purple shoulders. The branches and some of the fruit are fuzzy, (like peach fuzz) and some are smooth. Good tart and sweet flavors. Plant grows well in Hawaii and other hot humid areas.
Mid season. Indeterminate plant with regular, fuzzy foliage. Yellow segregation of "Wooly Kate", developed by Tom Wagner. The fruits are fuzzy, too and have purple skin almost black while the flesh is yellow-orange. Not only a great eye-catcher, but also great taste. Fruits are delicious and very sweet. Mid season variety(85-90 days from transplant). Indeterminate plants with woolly bluish-grey regular leaf foliage. Small round fruits are fuzzy and have antho-colored shoulders when exposed to direct sunlight. They are not only very beautiful, but also useful, because of the presence of a powerful antioxidant! The fruits are covered with a light peach fuzz, an average weight of 80-100 gr. Juicy flesh. A rare variety!
