Weird Shaped Tomatoes: Reasons And Solutions

Tomatoes can be rife with tomato fruit problems. These can be the result of a bacterial or fungal virus, insect infestation, mineral deficiency or an environmental stress such as lack of water. Many of these problems result in tomato fruit deformities which may not always make the fruit inedible. Catfacing is a common tomato issue that has not a thing to do with cats. Catfacing results in puckered or misshapen fruit and can happen to strawberries as well. Sunscald may also cause unusual looking tomatoes. They won’t be as odd as catfaced tomatoes, but the skin will develop a sunburned spot. Too much water after a dry spell can cause the skin to split (known as cracking), also leaving you with deformed tomato fruit. Keep reading about the causes here.
