I was looking over my four Roma tomato plants just a few seconds ago and
noticed that each are bearing several potential tomatoes... But, dang!
They're monstrous! (And [almost] all are square!)
I'm not watering them much (once a week), and I've never had Romas do this
in prior years, so I'm wondering why? Unlike previous years, the plants are
devoid of pests and have blossomed and grown very leafy during their regular
Any ideas on why these are mutants or should I just enjoy the super-size and
not sweat the look?
"Grits are akin to Elmer Paste with less flavor and more sand."
Last year, in the midst of the drought, I had a really poor crop of Romas.
Except for one plant that had HUGE fruit - I've been growing tomatoes for
probably 30 years and never seen anything like them. I saved the seeds from
them, but in this lousy wet NJ summer, they don't seem too happy. But they are
putting on some fruit, which is more than everything else (but the damn Zuchini
From Hell) is doing.
Enjoy them, and maybe save some seed?

there is no difference between large and small problems,
for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.
