Lemon Boy Grande

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Plucked a 12 1/4 oz beauty from the Lemon Boy plant this morning. Really happy with the Lemon Boy performance. Will be planting this again. Big beautiful yellow/orange tomatoes.

Sliced in to the Lemon Boy last night. Was delicious. More tangy than the other varieties I am growing, which I like.

First Lemon Boy finally ripened up. Weighs in at just over 9oz. Wasn’t expecting them to get that large. Looks good, will be slicing into it this evening. Paul Robeson has been producing well, as well as Early Girl (although I got a bush variety of EG and it seems to be petering out. must be a determinate). Also have picked a few Black Prince, which are smallish (3oz or so). Not a single fruit yet on the Orange Oxheart unfortunately.
