Default Breeding Whites

A few years ago I crossed White Queen and Amethyst Cream. I grew out the F1 of the cross this year. Got a good tasting saladette with some anthocyanin. Used the F1 to backcross to White Queen.

The F1 with one Amethyst Cream for comparison:

F1 Cut open:

Flavor is very sweet, similar to Amethyst Cream.

Beautiful.

I haven't grown many whites, but the ones I have were very tasty..equisite.
Lotos, Snow white, and this year Dr. Carolyn - the fresh fruity flavor with nuances not found elsewhere.
Amethyst Cream was a bit different, more 'antho' than really white / pale.

Well my goal is to add the Antho to White Queen

WOW! Now that would be a really interesting looking tomato! I can't see your pics anymore but are you growing the F2 this season? How big were they?
