Cracked,with underdeveloped seeds visible.I will leave it on the plant until it ripens,though I fear for the humanity's future...

Too much nitrogen+cold temps=this monstorsity.Looks like 3 full wheelbarrows of half-decomposed pig manure was a mistake.Many plants are showing signs of medium nitrogen overdose,but some don't seem to mind at all.Weird.

Default "half-decomposed pig manure"

With "half-decomposed pig manure" No wonder it looks like it just wants to leave town, or like it's looking for a major role in a Batman Movie.

" half-decomposed pig manure " No thanks, Never

Has anyone tested the market for ugly tomatoes? Some of these guys might go for $50...

I'm with you on this one, so I'll just be spectator. Fused/mega blooms also get removed as they seem to stall a plant's ability to set set additional fruit until the resulting monster tomato is removed.

Hi Cole,
Ya - I let it suffer too long! Temperatures got a little too cold in the GH when the poor thing was trying to set fruit - I think!
