During this time of year, so much hope and anticipation lie ahead, all bundled up in a seed.

I recently bought a six-pack of tomatoes from the grocery store. When I cut into the first one it was perfectly normal, then I cut into the second and third one out of the six pack and they had Sprouts growing out of the tomato and I had never seen one do that so I was wanting to find out if anyone has ever had something like that happen to them and if so if they could share that with me as well as how that's possible because I know I grow tomatoes and I've never seen that ever my entire life
Thank You!

yes, they sprout on my counter. They look fine, but when I cut into them, the seeds inside have sprouted. I just throw them away because they are not good to eat. I guess you could put them in the blender.

yes, exactly!

I don't' think it hurts to eat them. They are just not very good texture.

I started using canned tomatoes actually for a lot of things, because the store ones go bad so fast and I don't like to go to the store too often. The canned ones are nice to have on hand.
