Djeena Lee's Golden Tomato

76-80 days. Family heirloom that dates back to the Roaring Twenties. Medium-sized fruits have a beautiful golden-orange color. Flavor is a balance of sweet and tart, fruity and very tasty. This variety won first prize at the Chicago Fair 10 years in a row! Djena was the granddaughter of Minnesota financier Jim Lee. She grew this tomato in Minnesota, and in 1929 gave plants to Reverend Morrow, then 15 years old, who maintained it. Listed in the Slow Foods Ark of Taste.

What are the pros? Tasty, reliable

What are the cons? Can't think of any

Review:

I have grown golden girl for 8 years and plan to grow it always. It is somewhat late, and stays incredibly late on the vine, still edible even when temps are dipping. I love the subtle flavor especially in salsa but also in a sandwich with horseradish mustard and hass avacado. Or to eat fresh off the vine right in the garden. It's hard for me to grasp why others think it's flavorless. I only dress with well-rotted compost, no added nitrogen, maybe that's the key.

What are the pros? nice shaped and firm

What are the cons? no flavor

Review:

I tried these two years in a row. The 1st year I had them a little too crowded up so I tried them once more. The plants grew well did well even thought I have a problem with fungus. Both years they just did not have any flavor. Seems like the flavor could be hit and miss. Maybe is has to do with soil. I will not grow these this year.

What are the pros? productive and compact

What are the cons? Blah flavor.

Review:

My plants are LOADED, and very compact--and to me, appear at this point to be determinate. This variety is one of the first I began to harvest this year, among the more than fifty I have in the ground this season. And, at this point, it's all done but the picking and selling--no way to fix my problem. Unfortunately, the fruit are so "blah" that I'm considering not even offering them for sale. I don't want to have a blemish on my reputation for growing the best tasting tomatoes here. These have very little flavor, are somewhat "tough" and small--and yellow, not gold. I grew this variety last year, but sourced those seeds from a different company, and these things are NOTHING LIKE what I grew before. They are awful--too bad I have so many of them. I am sooooo disappointed. Hey, Baker Creek! I buy a lot of seeds. I get some great things from your company, but I think you have a real problem with your seed source on this one! BIG thumbs down.

Review:

Tried growing these again this year. They had a good germination rate. The tomatoes themselves were ~the size of a plum. They have an intense flavor that tastes somewhat like a tomato plant smells (if that makes any sense); eating some sweet 100s afterwards made the sweet 100s taste like nothing. Also, my garden was somewhat neglected (happens when you have 700 hrs overtime/summer); suffered the never-ending winter (Northern California) and they still came out well.I will be ordering some again next year.
