    All the time and effort, blood, sweat and tears, disappointments and failures, planning and spending, groaning at the weather forecast is so worth it when one of these comes along. Proof that our plants love us back for everything we do for them ♥️

      :wow:Marvelous tomato! :yay:I hope you haven't eaten it yet. Try to collect the seeds and plant them next spring. Who knows but perhaps all your new tomatoes will be heart shaped. You will call them Tinkerbelle. :yes::hapydancsmil:

        @Black Orchid awww that’s so sweet, but yes I have eaten it already :(

        It came from an Alisa Craig plant which is still fruiting, I do plan to save some seeds using the method @Scrungee uses.

        If I get another heart I’ll try and maybe be a Valentines seed producer one day :)

          So nice when something unusual crops up.

              Another couple of heart tomatoes, not quite as pronounced in heart shape as the first one. Will use @Scrungee technique to save some seeds from these two and see what happens next year. You can find @Scrungee seed saving technique under the TOMATO GROWING 2020 thread.
