I used to grow tomatoes from seed years ago, but had not done it lately, so when I saw the plants of Toma Verde for sale at a local nursery, I could not resist buying one. All summer I had so many flowers but no fruit set. Now that the cooler weather has arrived and it feels like fall, my plant is suddenly setting fruit. Lots of fruit. Go figure.
