Color Of Tomato Plants

As anyone that follows my posts knows, I am growing 4 "batches" of tomato plants sourced from supermarket tomatoes. They are quite different from each others. Batch 1 plants are vine like and one plant survived a Miami summer. The tomatoes are about 1 3/4 " in diameter. Batch 2 are tree like and lighter in color with larger tomatoes, much larger than batch 1. They are not disease resistant. Batch 3 are much darker green but have fewer tomatoes on the plants. They have little disease. Batch 4 are still seedlings. The jury is still out on these.

I'm growing purple, orange, yellow and red with orange stripped tomatoes this year. All from seeds. I'm excited to see how they turn out.

Here's an example of variety difference in tomato plant/foliage colors and structures/shapes: :D

I posted a bunch of seedling photos noting the colors and shapes of the foliage here, too. You are right! It's very interesting and intriguing 8)
