Default Wetzel Oxheart

Wetzel Oxheart seed that I bought locally. My plants stalled during the unusually cool summer. Now that we have an nice bit of Indian summer, I am finally seeing some of these start to mature. All of them have been more oval and lobed and beefsteak in appearance, not a well-shaped oxheart like the picture on the envelope. None of the ripe ones has retained green shoulders, either.

Here are some pictures of my battered plants. All of my plants were smaller than usual, and made smaller tomatoes than expected. Bacterial spot is a huge problem in the Penn-Ohio region this year, too.

Ok, Wetzel is the name of the seed company and I look at the picture and see some heart shapes and beefsteak shapes as well and they don't mention the origin of those seeds at all.

So it looks to me like what they might be selling are crossed seeds, but I don't even know if they grow their own plants to save seeds from or buy in bulk and repackage,lousy sentence that,but that's where it is for me this AM.
