Lemon-yellow tomatoes with a meaty bite

Days to Maturity: 70 from transplant

Indeterminate

With a more intense, meaty, and slightly tangy taste distinguishing it from the red varieties, Lemon Boy Hybrid is addictive. The lemon-yellow fruits glow with a sort of luminosity at maturity, and are both juicy and meaty, with a good solids-to-gel ratio that makes them easy to slice for sandwiches or cut up small for salads.

Strong indeterminate plants bear a big yield over a long harvest, extending your days of fresh tomatoes a little longer. They are resistant to verticillium wilt, Fusarium wilt race 1, and nematodes. Even if you're a beginning gardener, you can have great success with Lemon Boy.

Start the seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart.
