The Purple Ukranian scandal! (tomato related!)
Or is it? My query is whether what I'm growing is actually what the seed packet states it is. I got some seeds of "Ukranian Purple" (also known as Russian purple) who's image was the same as seems to come up 99% of the time when looking for this variety, decent sized pinky/purple egg shaped plum tomatoes..
I purchased it from what I believe is a legit seller (not the site above, used as example) and my other seeds from them are true to type, however I'm not so sure about what I have, as with my other varieties I'm still at the green tomato stage (bar yellow pear which are yellowing) but their shape doesn't seem to match up, here's a couple of photos...
So some seem elongated, but the biggest, especially the huge one the size of my hand, is certainly not the sort of shape appearing on photos.
Clearly waiting to see how it colours up will help, but just wondering if these are odd shaped fruits of the right variety, or if I'm growing something else here haha.
