I've got a weird tomato and I was hoping that someone might know what this is.
This Cherokee Purple tomato is just plain ugly. But it seems firm and doesn't have any open cracks. The plant is otherwise healthy and this is the only tomato on it that looks like that. It was a small tomato when we planted the plant, so the only thing I can think of is that it's cracked as it's grown. Perhaps the wet weather had something to do with it also?
At any rate, the bottom is starting to turn red in this picture and, now that we're a couple days past when I took this, it's ripened even more. I guess we'll find out when it's fully ripe and we slice it open.
If you have any ideas, please leave me a comment!
I've shared this post with this week's HomeAcre Hop in hopes that someone knows what this is!
