Djena Lee’s Golden Girl (Round)

About Djena Lee’s Golden Girl (Round)

An heirloom in Djena Lee’s family since 1921. This is the original round strain. 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 tomato won first prize at the Chicago Fair for many years in the 1920’s. Djena Lee’s Golden Girl produces 8-10 oz., richly flavored, round, meaty fruit with a vibrant golden-orange color. Its sweetness is nicely balanced with a wonderful pulse of acidity for a pleasant tangy feel in the mouth.
