    From a small tomato seedling, I’ve managed to get 6 tomatoes before the plant died on me due to my 10 day absence. The six tomatoes picked were nearly mature enough and when one red tomato was harvested, it has given me well over 100 seeds, which I’ve placed in a cup with water for four days, to ferment and will sow the seeds tomorrow, hoping for a bumper crop of tomatoes in 2 months’ time.
    This tomato has a very nice taste and I reckon when I have grown my own seedlings from these seeds, the mature tomato fruits will taste even better.
