The Lemon Boy is vigorous, has a mild flavor and is extremely disease resistant.

The plant produces 8 oz tomatoes with a distnctive bright lemon yellow skin.  The fruit is very flavorful, yet mild.  Excellent for salads and gourmet dishes.

Growing Tips

This is an indeterminate tomato variety, so it needs to be staked or caged.  Tomatoes should be planted outside after the last average frost date.  The plants prefer well drained soil that is high in organic matter.  In order to produce good yields, the plants need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day and regular watering.  Fertilize about every six weeks with a good fertilizer (we recommend worm castings if available).

They are delicious and didn't bother my wife's bladder!

We were so excited when we read that some people with Interstitial Cystitis can tolerate low acid tomatoes. We immediate ran out bought Lemon Boy plants through the internet (and stupid us, Home Depot carried them).

We got decent production out of the plants, but we were rookie tomato growers. We are hoping for a better crop this year. We've also planted Roma II's this year and are almost ready to harvest.
