Lemon Boy Hybrid Tomatoes are best known for their eye-catching, lemon yellow, medium sized fruit that grows to a mature size of roughly 3.5" in diameter and 7 ounces.  

Their taste is amazing, and best described as the perfect combination of mild and tangy, meaty, smooth, and slightly sweet. Although these have so many wonderful culinary applications, we're super fans of putting them into salads and sandwiches! 

Lemon Boy Tomatoes have an average maturation rate, and should begin to produce their first harvests sometime in the middle of summer, often sustaining their production of crops until mid-fall. One may expect ripe tomatoes about 60-75 days after planting one of our starter plants.

Lemon Boy Hybrid Tomato is an indeterminate variety of tomato, often referred to as a vine or cordon tomato. This means; unlike a determinate variety, they keep growing and producing tomatoes from the beginning of the summer until early fall (determinate varieties stop growing at a certain height, then produce all of their crop within a short time frame). 

Does not require staking or caging, although we highly suggest doing such. It grows as a vine, so un-staked plants will travel along the ground, causing their fruit to be more susceptible to rot. Lemon Boy Hybrid tomato plants are known to grow tall, so a strong stake or cage is suggested. 


Lemon Boy Hybrid Tomato Plant Care

Lemon Boy Hybrid Tomatoes will likely tolerate temperatures above 40°F, but it's suggested to attempt to keep them in temperatures above 55°F.

Plant 36" apart.

Suggest planting late-March through May depending on temperatures in your area. Keep in temperatures above 55°F. 

Does best in temperatures between 75°F and 95°F.

Likes organic, rich soil with lots of drainage. 

Make sure to water regularly and attempt to keep soil moist but not wet. 

Give early dose of high nitrogen organic fertilizer either when planting or as a part of soil preparation.

Will benefit from a high phosphorus organic fertilizer once established, just prior to or after it begins to produce fruit. 

Suggest caging, or staking and providing something to climb, although not required. Unsupported plants will likely grow on the ground in a somewhat vine-like fashion, which will drastically increase the potential of rotting fruit. 

You'll know your Lemon Boy Hybrid Tomatoes are ready to harvest once their skin turns their namesake lemon yellow color, and are firm, yet bouncy when squeezed.

Toxicity and Risks of Lemon Boy Hybrid Tomatoes

Tomato plants are actually considered toxic. They're members of the nightshade family, and produce an alkaloid called tomatine.
