Lillian's Yellow Heirloom Tomato

Delicious, large (up to 20 ounce), oblate, bright yellow slicing-type tomato.
Lillian's Yellow Heirloom Certified Naturally Grown Seed

90 days, indeterminate — A potato leaf, late maturing, large (up to twenty ounces), oblate bright yellow fruit with a meaty, dense (no air space), pale yellow interior and very, very few seeds. Great, rich, complex flavors that are a bit unusual for yellow-fruited tomato varieties. It is an excellent slicing variety.

This heirloom variety originated from Lillian Bruce of Manchester, Tennessee, via Robert Richardson of New York, and sent to author and tomato authority Craig LeHoullier back in 1988. He introduced it to gardeners through the Seed Savers Exchange and sent seed to us to raise in 2004. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
This tomato wins the garden this year.
This tomato is among my top three favorites too (my others are Sungold Cherry and Wapsipinicon Peach). It's a late producer, but the tomatoes are large, dense, and have amazing flavor. Relatively little cat-facing compared to other large tomatoes I grow. I'll definitely be planting more next year.

Gourmet in every way!
Later variety and not a heavy producer in my 2015 garden but a superb gourmet tasting tomato worth every minute of the wait. I have since purchased more seed for my sister's 2016 garden. I gave my neighbor an extra plant start to grow and her son-in-law said that it was the best tasting tomato that he'd ever had. It is certainly in my top three of the 37 varieties I grew this year. Definitely will be growing it again!

Great in Michigan
Large, yellow, no cracking, smooth, beautiful, and tasty. The yellow color was so striking and beautiful and uniformly yellow on the outside.
