  • I have 3 tomato plants next to each other and the middle one, Bull's Balls, is almost dead. The other two are thriving. Sometimes I think it might be the variety of tomato and specifics in climate, care, and location...not much you can do about it...

  • You KNOW I had to look up that one espoontoon. Bull's Balls? I am guessing COUILLES DE TAUREAU? It's a good looking tomato. I'll a picture into the original post. Where did you get it?

    I believe you are right about different varieties. What made Cosmonaut a magnet for aphids I don't know but maybe I should consider it a trap crop that kept heavy populations away from the others.

    With that thought, maybe I should not pull it as I was considering and baby it along to the aphids don't move over?

  • I wouldn't pull it or baby it. Survival of the fittest.

    I got the bull's balls from Palindrome at the plant swap. Palindrome had a lot of cool varieties...

  • It has a few tomatoes on it so keeping it will still be productive.

    I'll see if Palindrome is growing BB or Cosmo.
