Djena Lee's Golden Girl TomatoDjena 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, who was part Native American and the daughter of Minnesota financier Jim Lee. It was grown in the 1920s, given to Reverand Morrow when he was 15, and has been grown by his family since 1929.

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. Flavor 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."
