Other tomatoes grown that year in our garden and even from the same plant were just fine. Did we taste it? Um....no. We never ate the ugliest tomato I ever grew. We were afraid it might contain some of the insects that did the damage. But even without insect damage how would you slice a tomato like this? There's no great place to start the knife. Tomato issues like this could be caused by a number of factors from soil chemistry, to insects, to diseases, or genetics. There is a variety of tomato called the 'Ugly' tomato. My tomato did not come from that seed since I've never bought an 'Ugly' Tomato.
Around our house we would rather eat a tomato like the 'Woodle Orange' tomato!
Have you ever grown a tomato as ugly as this one? What's your favorite tomato?
