I'm growing ordinary varieties with extra ordinary seedlings, it's like a circus sideshow of seedlings.

So far odd ones I got

Albino seedling
Leucistic seedling
Dwarf seedling (shorter than my pinkie nail after 4 days but has healthy green leaves and growing slow)
3 leaved seedling
Seedling with no leaves just a stem
Twisted seedling that grew down instead of up and cracked from broken stem trying to dig into the soil even though it has green leaves.

I hope you got some good ones some where in that batch.

Where did you get your seeds from?

This was out of 150 seeds the rest were perfectly normal. Some were saved seed from my garden, some were from seed packets I brought. I personally enjoyed seeing them and sharing the photos!

I discovered a random variegated seedling! I grew no variegated varieties so I know this is a rare occurance, can't wait to see how it looks as it grows!

If you plan on saving seed for next year then whe they start producing flowers next year you MUST HAND POLLENATE. I actually have tomatoes growing from 1st gen amish and san marzano, from hand pollenation. I finally found the trick.
