Regardless, William, did i tell you i in fact had some volunteer tomatoes this year that self seeded from last year. They are flowering and fruiting now. Im interested to see what i get. It will be a surprise.
One of the cheesmaniae or pimpinellifolium that self seeded in the spot where the pimpinellifolium / peruvianum was growing last year looks like it May have a purple stripe on it! I wonder if it got bee crossed with peruvianum! Neither have stripes!
