Strange Tomato

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?

RE: Strange Tomato

are both the plants giving you the same color fruit?

RE: Strange Tomato

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

RE: Strange Tomato

if it had purple, would look like anna's noire.


RE: Strange Tomato

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.............

RE: Strange Tomato

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.

RE: Strange Tomato

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.
