    I grow yellow tomatoes that are low acid. A grocery store in my area also sells them in the summer time.

    The biggest difference in the home grown tomatoes is that they aren't sprayed with chemicals to ripen them artificially.

    HI I did a google search on yellow tomatos....here's what I found:
    6. Q. Are there really low-acid tomato varieties?


    A. There are some varieties that are slightly less acidic than others, but this difference is so slight that there is no real difference in taste or in how the tomatoes should be processed. Some yellow-fruited types are slightly less acidic than the normal red varieties, but not enough to make any difference. Research conducted by the USDA indicates that all varieties available to the home gardener are safe for water bath processing as long as good quality fruit are used. Flavor differences which exist between varieties are not because of differences in acid content, but balances of the sugar to acid ratio.

    I think that the yellow ones are the ones that are recommended for ICers due to the low acid.
