08.20.07 HORNED TOMATOES
I have been growing paste-type tomatoes for a long time. The most popular variety in the seed catalogs is probably "Roma." This year I came across several varieties which grow much longer than the typical pear-shaped tomato. These grow to two or three times as long (and two or three times as large!) and look like the horns on a bull. This photo does not do them justice, because here they are just babies hiding in the foliage before the deer find them.
