Tomato Colors?

Post  glasgrl on 8/18/2010, 4:17 pm

Can the outside color of a tomato depend upon weather and other growing conditions? I have never grown Amish Paste before. They're coming in very prolific, a smaller, oxheart-shaped tomato. But I thought they were supposed to be red. These tomatoes are mango!

They're *really* cute, and they're ripe. I was just really surprised by the color.

Oh good! Thank you! They just don't look like any of the pics Google came up with. I bought the plant from a local gardener, so I wasn't sure what to expect.

(The colored text was a nice touch. Cool )
