Creepy Mutant Tomatoes Week 8 and 9

June 13th, 2007 at 06:55 pm

Have no fear, the tomatoes are still here!

Actually, we're down to one, but boy is this one hearty.

Here were the two remaining tomatoes on Saturday, after 8.5 weeks. As you can see, once has a bad end (that could so be cut off and the rest of the tomato could be used).

For comparison purposes, here is the remaining 8.5 week old tomato hiding in a basket with week old tomatoes from the flea market. Can you tell which is which?

Today at 9 weeks and 1 day, the final creepy mutant tomato is still holding strong. Here he his hiding with the remaining flea market tomatoes, now 1.5 weeks old. Can you find him? Hint: he's not the one on the left!

Here he is in full glory: a tomato I've had in my posession for over 9 weeks, which makes it easily close to two and a half months old. CREEPY!!!

    Well, they do say they breed them for longer shelf life, but this is getting frightening.

    I am still going with the alien invasion theory. Hopefully he has not lulled you into a false sense of security yet.

    maybe you should take it to a taxidermist, for posterity.

    I really wonder if it has any taste at all....or if it ever did???

    Yes folks, this tomato is seriously scary!!! While the ones from the flea market may or may not be organic, they're leaps and bounds better than these scary guys.

    And you know what Sunshine Suz: these scary tomatoes never really had a great flavor, either. The flea market 'maters, however, are a wonderfully juicy, sweet-tangy tomato flavor and no mealy texture like you get in some grocery store specimens...

    Hehehe... Specimen is probably just the right word for this tomato by now!
