I grow them every year. I know they taste the same, but a tomato is suppose to be red!

I like them because they have more meat.

Yellow tomatoes are generally much less acidic than the red. Folks that have acid problems can usually tolerate the yellow better.

I grow a variety of colors red, orange, yellow, black (purple) and even ones that ripen green. They make a beautiful salad.
Scott
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Good looking tomatoes Irwin.
I like the colors other than red better because as Scott said they are less acic and they do all have a little different flavor from each other.
I grow a variety of colors myself, its fun to see them all mixed in the vegetable garden.
I grow multi colored carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and potatoes as well.

i love the yellow tomatoes.  only problem i have with them is that they don't seem to keep as long.  we didn't grow any this year and i regret that.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Beautiful Tomatoes Irwin! The yellow & orange are my favorites, as others say, less acidic.  You are right Kathy, they don't seem to keep as long but sure are tasty! The farm I work at has the rainbow carrots also, they are fun & make interesting carrot salad.  Natalie, you are a wild one running with scissors! :-D
