Bloody Butcher tomato

This has been a favorite variety, this year. The fruits are fairly round and meaty (though they can get soft when ripened well). The plant is productive and not enormous. If you want a lot of salad-sized tomatoes in a small space, this would be a good variety. Fruits began ripening fairly early. It tastes good, but it's not my personal favorite (I can see how others might favor it, though).

I got one fruit that was a lot bigger than the others. It had lots of locules. I plan to grow it next year to see if it was a sport.

Here is my Bloody Butcher tomato plant, so far, this year. I just thinned it, today. This is from the unusual fruit last year with firmer flesh and many locules; it may be a sport.
