Then, something very unusual, it began to show new, double normal growth tips from BELOW the cotyledons.

Go Pomidor Paw! Nature often finds a way! I hope it will have enough vigor to grow and set some fruit for new seeds for you.

And once it decided to survive it grew fast. This is the day it was planted out in its pot in the garden two weeks ago

Wow! It's making up for lost time! Must have developed a good root system while it was waiting for the leaves!

And today. My Pomidor Paw is back in business. I am so grateful to Dorota for finding the seed and my friend in Illinois has two plants growing from the seeds I passed on to him also so the future of the variety should be a little more secure.
I am excited to taste them and will save seed for certain.

Looks very vigorous! I was glad to read this exciting story of that variety! Hopefully it will fruit well for all of you who are growing it.

Unusually vertical growth habit. All the branches, even the laterals grow upwards. It looks like a Christmas tree 🎄 setting smallish fruit now. Leaves are rugose, dark green. I’ve never grown a plant that looks quite like it.
Interesting.

Is your friend in Illinois also experiencing this upward stretch on his plants? It seems like it should be a characteristic of the variety, but given your plants weird start ...?

That's the thing I love about tomatoes -- such a variety in leaf types and growth habit. Not to mention size, color and taste!

cherry, saladette, beefsteak?

Hello, they were pink, saladette. Very good flavour on an interesting plant with that oddly upright growth habit.
Folks in the mmmm might get some seeds, I sent it in.
