    I've had a few meals like that
    First - tear heart to shreds then run through a blender just to make sure
    But yeah, keep the seeds and who knows you might have a new tomato variety.

    JUST a tomato. There ain't no such thing. . Yes there are JUST supermarket tomatoes but ones you've grown yourself they're something else, particularly when they do something unexpected.

    Well, disappointing news with the new seedling. After a week, the long linear/lanceolate leaves have now changed to Potato Leaves. So what was, isn't, but I'll get a new tomato variety out of it, as the regular leaf is now potato leaf and a possibility of fruit changes too.
    I love growing tomatoes.
