    So this is what happens when you start crossing heritage / open pollianted tomatoes.

    Results of 2nd generation Roma "bred" with Beefsteak. It didn't turn out like I wanted at all... I was after a beefsteak with small seed pods and thick flesh but I ended up with the perfect pet tomato instead :lol
