This year I planted 4 varieties of tomato. Gardener’s Delight cherry tomato, Super Marmande, Rutgers and Cold Set. I started them all from seed in March and along the way, one seedling cup lost it’s label. I guessed at what it was, and planted it with two other Rutgers.
Now that it has grown, it has set a large number of 3 inch pear-shaped green tomatoes. I didn’t plant a pear-shaped tomato seed…on purpose. I don’t even own a packet of this type of seed. Strange things are afoot in the backyard garden.
So what’s more likely? Do you think I got a random seed that was in the wrong packet, or do you think my seed came from a tomato that got cross-pollinated before it was saved?
