Tomato Fruit Quality: What's Important for Color

Object description

Internal white tissue, yellow eye, yellow shoulder, and green shoulder are symptoms of the same problem, Yellow Shoulder Disorder (YSD).

The discoloration has a physiological cause beginning early in fruit development and cannot be reversed by delaying harvest.
