I found this one growing on a branch of "Snow White Cherry.I tried the seed and they came "true"so I have continued to propagate it since then.It is a bright lemon yellow with good flavor and indeterminate growth habit.I shared the seed with SSE and after their initial trials they made it available for sale.Lemon Drop does have one bad feature.If heavy rains come late in fruit developement,some of the ripe ones will crack.This is true of many open pollinated varieties in my garden.If you ferment seed,be careful.Many will sprout during fermentation.I just dry and plant with no disease problems so far.

A sprawling plant that produces a tasty little, light yellow/white Tomato. The fruit is very similar in appearance to Snow White, or Snowberry.

Grows well in Southern Indiana with good continuous fruit production. The color adds a nice touch to salads or other dishes where cherries are used.
