my toms seem to be taking forever to turn red, patience isnt my best virtue, I'm more of a cucumber gal x

What an interesting looking tomato and it looks like there're many more to harvest! What does it taste like?

It tasted wonderful! This was one of the 'cristate' flowers that I blogged about earlier. Most others on the plant are a more uniform beefsteak shape.

Those are some strange looking tomatoes but obviously good!

Hi matron, I would have expected a suitable musical score to accompany those pics!
No such luck over here, not a red or even pink tom in sight as yet.
