Normal varieties sometimes grow sticky out bits dont they - can look quite rude at times, ha ha. Do you grow beef tomatoes Sandra?

Wonderful. I hoping mine will be ready mid-July. Hope the sun shines again soon as you can almost see them grown then, can't you. I have Shirley, Alicante, St Pierre, Tiny Tim and Money Maker. Just love them.

This one's not the best looking tomato I've ever seen Sandra but probably tastes just as good in a fry up or a sandwich. You can let us know in a few weeks!

I'm growing a new one (new to me) this year Sandra . It's called Matina. I have some in grow bags in my cold frame and some outside in pots and veg patch. They are strong growing plants and the leaves look more like Potato leaves than Tomato. We'll see what they taste like in a few weeks, hopefully!

i havent met that one. but we have a few potato leved varieties.

I grtew one which looked similar last year, Sandra, called Glacier but the fruits were quite small and the skins were very tough so didn't sow any this year! Also they got blight but so did other varieties last year!

we've had some blight on the ones in big tubs. we sprayed them once (which i didnt like doing) and moved them outside. put more drainage holes in the buckets which improved the drainage and i think they are in recovery...
this one realy looks like three huge strwberrys stuck together...lol
