Same plant - 2 different tomatoes

barryla61(VA - 7)July 18, 2011

Picked these off of an Early Goliath. Have 4 plants, fruit is like this on all 4. One sandwich size, one snack size. Both shapes taste very good!

Any explanation for this?

Are the top two perfectly round and red b'c what I see with the bottom ones are small plums that are not the same color, being more orange.

I've given up keeping track of all the Goliaths, but are you growing one the F1 hybrids or one of the OP's or the heirloom Goliath, which is also OP.

And your seeds were purchased or received in a trade?

Having all four plants give you two shapes and sizes and colors says to me that something's amiss somewhere and so I'm assuming you aren't growing one of the commercially avaialable F1 hybrid Goliaths.

The 2 big ones aren't perfectly round but very close.
The smaller are different in color only because they were picked before they ripened, they do get red.
These came from plants I bought at a local greenhouse.
