‘Djena Lee’s Golden Girl’ is a beautiful, round, golden heirloom tomato that is cultivated by Djena Lee’s family since 1921. Djena (pronounced ‘Shena’) who was part Indian was the granddaughter of Minnesota financier, Jim Lee. In 1929 she gave plants to her young friend, Reverend Morrow, who has since sustained the variety. ‘Djena Lee’s Golden Girl’ tomato won first prize at the Chicago Fair for many years in the 1920s.
‘Djena Lee’s Golden Girl’ produces 8-10 oz./220-280g, richly flavored, round, meaty fruit with vibrant golden-orange color. Its sweetness is nicely balanced with a wonderful pulse of acidity for a pleasant tangy feel in the mouth. Midseason, about 75-78 days to maturity.
