Lemon Ice is our favorite dwarf tomato, is perfectly named: sweet & creamy with rich, juicy flesh. Organic Lemon Ice Dwarf Tomato is always the first dwarf tomato to ripen each season. Also, many yellow tomatoes are low acid and their flavor isn’t as balanced and robust; Lemon Ice, though low acid, is a fabulous exception, her depth of flavor leaving nothing to be desired. Her incredibly stout 2.5 to 3-foot plants are impressively prolific and perfect for containers. You’ll find fewer seeds in Lemon Ice than many other varieties and she’s often heart-shaped! Extraordinarily, each year we’ve grown Lemon Ice we’ve found a Song Sparrow nest in her stout, strong branches, tucked into the foliage.

At Fruition, we sow tomatoes in soil blocks indoors 2 months before final frost, early April for us here in Zone 5, germinating them on heat mats with ease. Good light is essential: Younger, less stressed seedlings are healthier and more abundant than older, more stressed seedlings.

Description

Lemon Ice is our favorite dwarf tomato, is perfectly named: sweet & creamy with rich, juicy flesh. Organic Lemon Ice Dwarf Tomato is always the first dwarf tomato to ripen each season. Also, many yellow tomatoes are low acid and their flavor isn’t as balanced and robust; Lemon Ice, though low acid, is a fabulous exception, her depth of flavor leaving nothing to be desired.

Extraordinarily, each year we’ve grown Lemon Ice we’ve found a Song Sparrow nest in her stout, strong branches, tucked into the foliage. We are so thankful for the millennia of indigenous seedkeepers who laid the foundation of delectable diversity so folx like Craig LeHouillier could create all his fabulous new dwarf tomatoes, hooray!

At Fruition, we sow tomatoes in soil blocks indoors 2 months before final frost, early April for us here in Zone 5, germinating them on heat mats with ease. Good light is essential: Younger, less stressed seedlings are healthier and more abundant than older, more stressed seedlings.

All Fruition’s dwarf tomatoes will grow in 5-gallon containers, though they’ll truly thrive in 10-gallon containers or larger. We share our go-to containers for gardening as well as organic slow-release fertilizer making container gardening easier and more abundant. For all dwarf tomatoes, though trellising is optional, a little goes a long way in helping fruit ripen quickly and easily harvested.
