Strange Tomato

gldno1August 13, 2008

I have two of these plants in the lasagna bed.

The fruit is very sweet and tasty. I am saving seeds. I have looked at pictures of green tomatoes and nothing looks like it.

I don't know if it is caused by disease or what.

I only planted yellow and pink Brandywine and Mt. Gold and Granny Cantrell.

Any ideas?

are both the plants giving you the same color fruit?

Were all your seed "new" this year, or some form last year?

They are all the same color; I will be watching for later fruits to see what happens.

All seeds were new and were from Baker Creek.

I have the Black Pineapple, but it is totally different and smaller fruit.

Very interesting.............

Does Baker Creek have a catalog that you can study? It doesn't look like a disease to me usually they would cause a bad outcome. Maybe it is Glenda's Green Wonder.

I am beginning to think it is the Black Pineapple tomato from Baker Creek. The one plant I have labeled doesn't really look exactly the same though, so maybe there is a great variance in them.

I will be watching closely the rest of the season.
