Unusual Shaped Tomatoes

United Kingdom Gb

We bought Santini Tomatoes from M & S. My daughter planted some of the seeds and they germinated.The resulting tomatoes look like small bell peppers, not like the originals. Have we created a hybrid? Taste great as well!




they look exactly like Italian tomatoes i had last week, tasted fantastic

No, no hybrid, these are lovely delicious what we call Italian tomatoes, just like what Irish calls them. What is that coin next to it??? I like that too! You know, these tomatoes are nicer sliced on pizza's and in the oven than ordinary ones. I think they have more flavour than normal ones.

I grow these each year too, as they tend to be fleshier than the regular ones and nicer in cooking & sauces.

I have also grown 3 from seeds via M&S. 2 are ordinary plants, but one has developed masses of flowers, some of which are turning to fruit. Can anyone explain??
