Peace Tomato

This was supposed to be my Green Zebra Tomato. It turned out to be an angry looking thing with the yellow and green fighting for surface. All those old tomatoes combined with all my bees, I honestly doubt I have had more than one or two tomatoes a year that turn out like the picture in the seed catalog. I don't mind. They all taste great and retain many of their evolved properties. Besides that, I like the surprise.

Surprise is what I got when sliced the end from this tomato - a peace sign. I know I'm aging myself since the peace sign is not as popular as it once was, and most children are more familiar with the similar, but not the same, Mercedes Benz logo. But look!! The yellow and green rage of the surface found peace in an almost neon citrus green center.

Groovy?
