@wxcrawler It almost looks like it should glow in the dark.
The behaviour of light means you observe me as i was then, and not as I am now.
I cannot change history, so I do hope i gave you a good impression of myself

@wxcrawler; "It is disturbingly ugly."

Anyone selling at a farmers' market should be wise to steer clear of Korichnevyy Rebristyy. :shock:

I think that @WoodSprite has everyone beat just by the shear numbers of ugliness. WoodSprite which one is your ugliest?

NICE! Those are faces only a mill could love!

Most of my catfaced stuff happens early, that is impressive to have that into September!

@Cornelius_Gotchberg - They are creepy-looking. Your surrender is accepted. LOL!

@Tormato - I'm growing this variety for the Ukrainian swap. The few photos I could find online showed them as gorgeous tomatoes. I'm disappointed that they are all catfaced. It's been years since I've grown any catfaced tomatoes. I'm not a fan so I completely agree with your assessment. They also don't taste nearly as good as I was hoping.

@MissS - I already harvested the seeds from them and didn't compare them. Badly catfaced tomatoes gross me out.

@JRinPA - I was hoping they'd improve later in the season but so far even the later/smaller ones are catfaced, too, the last time I checked. I'll have to check them again. I'd really like to see how they are supposed to look.

This is the plant on August 31 before I harvested the ripe ones.

I had a mislabeled plant do this for me one year. They were truly ugly tomatoes that had us laughing every time we harvested them. I think that we threw most of them away after unsuccessfully trying to find homes for them.

WOW Woodsprite that plant is not fooling around!! :shock:

I did get some late as well as early catfaces, so I think maybe heat can do it as much as cold. Or maybe this plant was just making faces at me for setting fruit I needed a stepladder to pick. :roll: Lots of pretty fruit in the middle though.

I was going through some old pic's and came across this photo of my ugly tomatoes which made me laugh. This was an off-type so I have no idea of what variety it was.
