It's an historic and proud day at May Dreams Gardens, the day I confirm that indeed, I have grown the Worlds' Ugliest Tomato, the "WUT", pronounced "what", as in "what is that?"
Earlier this evening, the WUT, a 'German Johnson' variety, hung from the vine, absorbing the last rays of sun on a glorious August day.
Even as the ugliest tomato, it has a certain beauty to it, hiding beneath the leaves.
The WUT is no ordinary tomato, clearly. Look how it is attached to the vine.It took me a few minutes of study and close scrutiny to determine that to remove the WUT, I would also need to cut off a fair amount of the tomato vine and another green tomato attched to it.
Here's the WUT, showing the vine and attached green tomato.
You can also see that the tomato vine is green and free of disease.
Once inside, I removed the vine and the green tomato and weighed the WUT.
That's 1 lb. 8 oz. of pure tomato, making it also a big WUT!
Then the moment of truth... I sliced through the WUT to see what it was like inside. The WUT appears to be compromised of at least four tomatoes that grew together to form the World's Ugliest Tomato.
And it tasted pretty good, too.
It will long be remembered here at May Dreams Gardens.
This is the picture I'll use as proof of the WUT, should anyone come forth with a challenger for the World's Ugliest Tomato. Feel free to try, but I think you'd be wasting your time.
Yes, I did eat part of it, that's a requirement for it be the WUT, and it tasted good, like a tomato should.
And now as a special bonus, the first video filmed at May Dreams Gardens...
