Surprise Tomatoes

Postby andi » Fri Feb 24, 2012 11:59 am

Bought our home nearly five years ago from an elderly Italian woman who had devoted the entire back yard to fruit and vegies. We re-did to a more 'normal'garden but every summer tomato seedlings have been popping up in the same spot in the front yard. Normally just pulled them out but this year I decided to pot some up. They are now giving me a bumper crop, no idea what variety they are but much more prolific than the advanced 'patio' variety I bought this year. Looking forward to fried green tomatoes my dad used to make me 30 years ago.

From seeds they are also going to be well adapted to your soil and area, you may have something new that has cross bred, or a heritage tomato.

Don't take a cutting from a plant that has taken over a vacant block just because it's free.
