The Cumato (Cucumber-Tomato)
Status: UndeterminedThe Alvin Sun-Advertiser reports on a rare hybrid found by a local gardener a tomato-cucumber. They're calling it a 'Cumato': Unfortunately the photo of Rodriguez holding the cumato is pretty bad. You can't see any details of the rare vegetable. I also want to know if he's cut it open. What's inside of it? Is it simply a tomato, or is it a combination of both? For now I'm skeptical of this. (Thanks to 't' for the link)

Yes.It is possible.My tomatoes and cucumbers were too close in the greenhouse last year and they did cross-breed similar to the picture here.Posted by Trish in Oshawa, ON on Wed Apr 18, 2012 at 10:38 AM
