Djena Lee's Golden Girl Tomato

Djena Lee's Golden Girl Tomato

C$4.00Price

(80 days) Indeterminate. So pleased to be able to offer this remarkable variety after many years' absence. Djena Lee's thrived during the drought with no watering! The plants produce heavy yields of beautiful, medium-large (8-10 oz), golden-yellow fruit that is meaty and juicy at the same time. The tomato was developed by Djena (pronounced Zshena) Lee, who was part Native American and the daughter of Minnesota financier Jim Lee. She grew it in the 1920's and then gave it to Rev. Morrow in 1929 when he was 15. It has been grown by his family ever since. The taste is so incredible that it won first place at the Chicago Fair for 10 years in a row and it has been listed on Slow Food USA'S Ark of Taste.
