I'm sure that I will loose, but I just picked a really ugly tomato! I have had a lot of fused or maybe Siamese twins this year!

While "ugliness" is a charcteristic of older beefsteak types like Henderson's Ponderosas. Here is a brand new hybrid That puts out more ugli fruits than any variety that I have ever grown. It is called Grandma's Pick, but I don't think my Grandma would ever have picked one. Grandma's Pick photo Grandmaspick3a_zps09564c8e.jpg

I agree, Farmerdill.
That tomato gives grandma a bad reputation. Cats have beautiful face. This one is really ugly.

I let this fellow develop from a compound blossom earlier this year as a curiosity. It's even ripening differently!

It's a boy! It also had an unfortunate accident and is now recuperating on the counter. It's really not that ugly....
