After hip surgery, I started a few supermarket tomato seeds and put them into 18 gallon recycling tubs and let them go. One of the older plants has 16 tomatoes on it now. So far little to no disease or insect damage, and this is Miami Florida.

There's a box titled "Disable BBCode" that was ticked when you posted your pics. That disables the forum formatting codes, including the ones for displaying photos. At some point you may have disabled BBCode in your profile. I just fixed that. All sorted now.
They were either some generic camperi or labeled "redlands" which is a farming area here in miami-dade county.Lindsaylew82 wrote:Do you remember what kind they were?
One year I had some late winter compari tomatoes I got from the store and the seeds sprouted INSIDE the tomato. It was really strange looking. The momma tomato didn't rot or anything! I think I have a picture somewhere.....
I get those horrible things every year.Garf wrote:Both disease and insects have found the plants. The insects are black beetles. I will try to post a pic.
I'm sorry! Those bugs looked like Plum Curculio, but tomato are not their hosts!Plants 3 & 4 have plum tomatoes, I have no idea what variety.
