Ripe Tomatoes With Seeds Sprouting Inside
The beautiful red, ripe tomato I have (store bought) has seeds sprouting inside of it. Some are tiny green stems uncurling and one has what looks like a micro leaf at the end. I have concerns about eating this tomato due to the fact that they are of the nightshade family and you're not suppose to eat anything but the fruit. Am I wrong? I do plan to salvage as many of the unsprouted seeds as possible just to see what would come up this next growing season. So, would you eat the tomato or not?
