Racoons and Tomatoes
Do racoons eat tomatoes?
Here is the evidence.
This morning and several other mornings I have found a half eaten 2 pound yellow brandywine tomato on the ground.
These tomatoes were picked, not chewed off of the vine. It takes me using both hands and a firm tug to pick one, so I know this animal is strong.
No evidence of plant damage. Sometimes the tomato is half eaten but left on the vine.
The row is next to a creek which is excellent cover.
Also, I bought the parent tomato at a farmer's market. It is a yellow brandywine and produces very well.
Each tomato is over one pound with many in the two to two and one half pound range. Is this a normal yellow fruiting brandywine trait?
Not very many seeds in it either. Tastes delicious!
Thanks for your replies in advance,
