Pirate tomato

Every year one or two tomatoes display odd protrusions. But this year’s specimen trumps the simple horns of years past. Avast!

The variety is Striped Roman. It seems some people think there’s a market for such misshapen fruits. I had good fun presenting mine to a friend along with a pile of other less silly tomatoes. Arrrrrrr.

Edited to add pics of the demon tom of yesteryear:

    I have noticed similar protrusions on a number of the tomatoes in my garden. But not on my Romas or Big Boys, but on the 4th of July hybrids.
