Tomato Plant Lemon Boy

This is the yellow tomato. The plant was allowed to grow with a cage for minor support, and no suckers were removed. The plant grows large and produces many clusters of high quality fruit. The down-side is some branches get broken due to the weight of the fruit, and much space must be left around the plant for growing. Except for this, the tomatoe plant can be grown quite successfully without removing the suckers. Sucker removal is probably a personal choice, dictated by space available, and ease of picking.

Lemon Boy produces almost perfectly shaped tomatoes with no blemishes, much more so than other tomato types. Some people prefer them, but others find them not to their liking.

A few ripe Lemon Boy picked today. I have many large green tomatoes on the four lemon boy plants. My tomatoes are relatively poor this year, due to cold weather in June, but I do have enough for our needs, and the quality is acceptable, certainly not like 2007.

The yellow tomatoes are touted to be less acidic than most of the reds, but I am not certain of this comment, since I never tested them.

I'm just starting to see some colour change on the lemon boy. There is a lot of fruit happening and so I suspect a great harvest.

Looking forward to it. To eating them and sharing them.
