“As The ‘Mater Turns”


My “grapes” turn to “pears”

still the same o’ersweet taste:

this reveals hybrid!*

 

*(The hybrid “grape” tomatoes are supposedly immune to throwing true from seed. But for at least a few generations mostly they do. But sometimes a pear tomato shape and less frequently a true pear tomato – itself probably a hybrid of a miniature – cherry? – tomato sometime in the misty past of last month, emerges.  I have two such in my cargo pants lower pocket to take home, squeeze and save seeds, to go along with the my lone yellow pear tomato examplar awaiting the same fate. Yummmm!)
