Lemon Tomato

Posted by terrepruitt on August 3, 2010

Beautiful and sweet. I could have sworn the tag said lemon tomato. I don’t think we saved the tag. As you may know I just started eating tomatoes within the past couple of years. My mother-in-law grew Zebra Tomatoes and I started my tomato journey with them.

I have come to realize that I do not care for mushy tomatoes. I like them firm, maybe even on the just-before-ripe side. Also, I like them raw not cooked. So I was watching the tomatoes my Wonder-Hubby planted very carefully. Now, you also may know that I don’t know the first thing about gardening and ripe or not so I rely on my hubby to tell me. He is a fantastic gardener when he has time. He can make on-the-brink-of-death plants come back to life. I was watching the one tomato that was yellow very closely. But obviously not close enough. One afternoon while I was doing Nia in my living room I glanced outside and I noticed the tomato looked odd. I went to investigate, something had tasted our tomato. I was very sad.

I was wondering if taking it and cutting off the “tasted” portion was too gross. I hadn’t examined it to see how much damage had been done. I posted my sadness (either on FaceBook or Twitter) and other people said that they would eat it as long as you were able to cut off all the evidence of “tasting”. Once I assessed the damage and I concluded that whatever tasted it just peeled and poked a little so I cut the fruit in half making sure there was nothing on the half I was planning on eating. Then I cut it up and shared it with my hubby. It was sweet. I was surprised.

I looked online to see if I could find some information about them to post, but there are a lot more than I realized and now I am not sure which ones we have. They kind of look like Lemon Boy but I am not sure because they are much smaller. What do they look like to you? Do you know tomatoes? Whatever they are, they are very tasty. They are somewhat sweet and really taste more like fruit to me.

We wanted to grow Zebras but couldn’t find them. Which is somewhat good because now we have tried a new (to us) tomato. So many people grow tomatoes. Do you? What kind?

  1. I love the color of those tomatoes. They look too pretty to eat. I like eating the red ones but I haven’t tried the lemony kind. Interesting. I guess whatever tasted it didn’t like it. LOL.

    • They are very pretty tomatoes, so are the zebra ones. I like little red ones, like grape and cherry.

      Ya know that is the thing with most animals they just seem to taste it an ruin it for us. When the eat the whole think it isn’t so bad. I don’t mind sharing. I just hate when they waste it.

    Tomatoes are fruit, sweetheart. Not what we think of as fruit, but technically. I keep saying I’m going to grow tomatoes and bell peppers on my balcony, but never get them in time. They don’t do well here in Arizona when it’s 115 degrees. I might check to see if I can grow some in the fall. Love, love, love them! *Squishy Tomato Hugs* (Eeeeewww! What a mess!)

    • Yes, tomatoes are a fruit, that is why I have this categorized under Food/Fruit. So I guess if I learned to like them cooked I would be doing more cooking with fruit. Is that what you are saying?

      I don’t think I knew you were in Arizona. Now I know. I might not remember because I am having a hard time keeping track of all the online people that I talk to because to me they are right here, next to me! Tee hee!
