Just wondering if this is typical of this variety.
I've got a number of mutant looking fruits. They all have heavily
ribbed shoulders, some quite heart shaped. But the really
mutant-looking ones look like two and three plum tomatoes cojoined.
Some have rough dried trailing scars along a ridge, near bottom or
sligtly to the side of the boottom. It almost looks like the tip where
the flower was stretched out, and stretched and stretched. They don't
look like anything got inside the scar, but they are hard to examine.
One is wrapped around 2/3 of the stem, growing like a partially eaten
donut around it.
This is my first try with Cherokee Purple. The plant looks healthy and
but is only about a 30" bush right now. At least a dozen good size
fruits so far--all green. My brandywine(also new this year, 5 feet
away) is much larger, 4' tall and wider and there is a little blush on
