In a 6 pack of Mortgage Lifter tomato plants one of them has fern-like leaves.  It is very healthy.  Does anyone know what type of tomato this is?  I Googles, but everything came up as a disease.  This plant is not diseased in any way.

Does is smell like a tomato?  Like if you pull a leaf?  It looks like a one-off, maybe a cross?

There is a variety called Silver Fir tree tomato with leaves like that. I grew it once, it was a short determinate. I think they are a Russian heirloom. 

If you can, move it to someplace it won't be over whelmed by those huge mortage lifter plants around it.  They will enjoy the extra space too.

How interesting! I had 5 seeds left in the packet of Snow Fairy tomatoes and one germinated into a regular looking tall tomato plant. (SN is a compact, prolific plant) There is bound to be occasional seed mixed in the packing process, or a cross pollination?

Fern leaf tomato? Empty Update on my fern leaf tomato

Post  dixie 8/8/2019, 2:46 pm

The questionable tomato in the 6 pack of Mortgage Lifter tomatoes evidently was a Mortgage Lifter.  The fruits were the same, but with the scant foilage they got sun burned.  There were only 3-4 huge tomatoes, very few blooms after that.

Hi, Looks lie I am a little late with this thread, because I had a fern leaf too. It looked like it was on the same plant as a regular tomato, it was a healthy plant. I put it in a large container at the end of May and although I got several small tomatoes not one of them ripened. I live on the Prairies in zone 3b. 
In fact, none of my tomatoes ripened this year. I had a very mixed variety from heirloom to yellow plum and Tom Thumb. 
I picked all the green ones in Sept. and they are ripening in the house.
I am very puzzled by this, as I have grown toamoteooes for years and they've always reopened

That’s very strange, Iceni.   And your summer weather was typical?

Sorry if I am not posting this correctly. But re the fern leaf tomatoes. Our weather was a typical summer, lots of variations in the weather, from cooler temps to high and humid. We get very little rain, but I do water when there are no restrictions. Nothing any different from other summers. I might add all the tomatoes are ripening in the house. I just don't understand it.
I asked around town and no one else seems to have had tomatoes that did not ripen. The plants were tall and green with lots of blossoms and lots of small fruit, but that was it. I seeded some in the house and put them out at the end of May, some I seeded directly in the ground and all were planted in different parts of the garden. Some in huge 40 gallon planters, as I say, all with the same lack of results, and the ones in the planters were in totally different soil too.

 Dixie , did you save any seeds from the fern leaf tomato plant ? I'd love to try a couple in my glasshouse next year .
