A question for tomato people...
Apr 30, 2012
So, last spring when I first started gardening I bought a packet of Black Krim tomato seeds on Ebay. I failed miserably at growing tomatoes from seed last year and ended up buying a Black Krim plant instead. It did great.
This year, I decided to try those seeds again and ended up with 2 nice plants. I gave one to my neighbor and planted the other for myself. My neighbor's is producing tomatoes that pretty much look like Black Krim's to me (they're not ripe yet, though, so I can't be sure), but mine look nothing like Black Krim. Big sprays of flowers with lots of small fruit, like a cherry type.
I know now that Ebay seed vendors are notorious for being rip-offs, and so I'm guessing that maybe the seed was just taken from a grocery store tomato or something. If so, does anyone have any thoughts about the likelihood of my prolific plant producing something decent? I could be using that space for okra right about now...
