The yellow tomato nutrition facts can be found in the table below. Yellow tomatoes don't occur by accident. There are many varieties, and they can be grown in many shapes and sizes. Whereas red tomatoes are bursting with lycopene (one of the carotenes), yellow tomatoes have a lot less.
Really the main benefit of the yellow tomato is in the acidity level. It has a lot less than the red variety, so may be perfect if you do not like acidic food. Additionally they look great in salads.
