Whoa, that's some mutant tomato!
Tier 1 - I just want something green. Perennial "weeds" that stay green year round are welcome.

The world of tomatoes is much more varied than you see at the grocery store, there are heirloom varieties that just grow like that, and colors can range from nearly white to black skin with purple flesh.

Looking good, do you get help with more than the picking and eating?

LOL! I live in an area with quite a few small farms that sell fresh local tomatoes. In the wintertime, they grow them in greenhouses and sell them at the local Co-op. I am now spoiled and cannot palate a supermarket tomato ever again!

Supermarket tomatoes are terrible compared to homegrown!

I'm with you guys on homegrown vs store-bought. There's really no comparison. I couldn't believe how delicious my tomatoes were my second year growing them. First year I bought plants but second year I started everything from seed. The kids love them and my coworkers eat the crap out of them too.
