My poor tomato. I dont know if this one has potential or not... but the artificially created split is nearing 1/4 ". Its better than having the stem pull away from one of the lobes. I think I will continue experimenting with this and maybe splitting the stem earlier, perhaps just a few days after pollination. The earlier it's done, perhaps the better it can heal. This could end up being a key technique for growing heavy tomatoes. The color is bad because of sulfer burns. I think the sulfer burnd did slow the actual growth of the tomato the unburned portions are healthier and growing noticeably better.
