from the top the usual 'catface' of the Purple Calabash tomato
underneath its a sort of tomato mutant!!

I'll give it another couple of days to ripen up on the window sill and then see how it tastes, probably great!

Wildside, I think it kind of fits in with the whole 'alternative' garden thing, other people might not like it but its a welcome thing to me.
GF, outer space tomatoes! great idea!

It is rather hemmorrhoidal, isn't it?
But was it tasty?

Never seen a tomato like that before.

Coffee is on.

Poetikat, it was tasty but your description makes it sound non-edible!
Dora, I'm hoping that next years tomatoes are better behaved!
Becky, I'm good! like the Martha programme!

Claire, blame that comment on "The Vicar of Dibley" where I first heard a joke about hemmorrhoids that made me fall about laughing.

Poetikat, I like that programme its sooo funny.

I love unusually shaped tomatoes. And different varieties. It's the great thing about homegrown isn't it?
