Djena Lee's Golden Girl tomato
Djena Lee's Golden Girl tomato is a large golden orange fruit with a semi-thick skin. This tomato was developed by Djena (pronounced "Zshena") Lee in the 1920s. The tomato's intense orange color is very striking. It has an excellent balance of acid to sugar, giving it a sweet yet tangy flavor. The flavor of the Golden Girl was so highly prized that these tomatoes won first place at the Chicago Fair 10 years in a row. Tasters also enjoy its texture throughout: "When eating the center of the tomato it continues to explode in my mouth," one commented.
