Two of the tomatoes I picked yesterday were from plants I bought at a supermarket and planted early (August 23). I can't remember their name. I only planted two and passed the rest onto a friend...with the label. The other one was a green zebra (above)...I think, only it isn't green...except for the seeds. It was one I bought in a variety pack of four from Diggers.
At first, I was thrilled when I cut open the other one...no seeds!
Firm, flesh all the way through and full of flavour!
However, as I munched my lunch I got to thinking about the lack of seeds.
Is this variety one selectively bred by gardeners in the traditional manner, crossing and re-crossing plants with fewer and fewer seeds? Or is it one of the new genetically manipulated varieties?
Maybe I will never know, but I think it is time to take a little more care with what I plant, and record the varieties better.
