All Heart

Just when I thought my Little Heart tomato had settled down with its genetics, what should it throw up at me - none other than a "heart" tomato on one of the plants growing in the garden. The single heart shaped fruit is so much a reminder of what this plant produced for me last year when I first discovered it. I suppose that from the 5 plants I have grown this year, one odd shaped fruit isn't too bad.

I had 4 plants that were surplus to my needs this season and I gave them to my friend Neely to grow as they had a big future ahead of them, but sadly due to unforeseen circumstances, these plants threw odd shaped fruit, so much so they could be described as mutant. Sorry Neely, next year they'll be good - I hope.
