This fascinating cultivar possesses absolutely no dark pigmentation- even its eyes are whited out! Very old adults tend to yellow with age. As pure “White Out” is descended from United States wild stock, when crossed to other lines the typical US Porcellio scaber phenotype of grays with some yellow and orange calicoes are produced in the first generation as there are no other simple recessives associated with this line.
