I have 2 plants of window box roma tomatoes in 2 big containers, and I had my first flowers bloom. I was so excited to see that one of the flowers was turning into a tomato. I am in the philippines and temp is 75-86 so I had about 3-4 flowers drop before this one started to grow further. However, I noticed that this particular one was strange looking. Today, the other flowers started turning into tomatoes and none of them look like the first one. Can someone tell me if they are twin tomatoes? And what should I do? Just let it grow?

I know this is a bit late but what happened is called fussed blossoms. This is how the world record tomatoes got so big.

RE: twin tomatoes? Is that what these are?

In this instance it is NOT a fused blossom.

This is the result of something that restricted the growth of the fruit shortly after fertilization took place and it began to swell. It was probably the base of the anther cone which constricted it until it fell away.
