Volunteer tomato 1, 2019 (probably HCRxSOC F2)

Here's a volunteer tomato. I believe it's Husky Cherry Red F-something x Sweet Orange Cherry F2. It resembles the F1 last year. However, it doesn't have quite the vigor and production as last year's. The taste is mild. I picked some others on Tuesday. The bigger one here isn't fully ripe, but the plant usually has the bigger size. The less ripe one had a peachy taste and a crunchy texture, kind of like a less ripe Sweet Ozark Orange.

Tomato fruit, whole, from a volunteer that is probably Husky Cherry Red x Sweet Orange Cherry.

I saved seeds from one with ten locules, today! It was bigger than the others. By the taste, I'm guessing it had more malic acid than is usual for a tomato.

Here's a stainless steel bowl chalk full of them that I harvested, today. We're considering pickling them. This bowl is smaller than the one that the Galapagos Island tomatoes I harvested today are in.
