I'm trying to get F2 seed from some Lime Green Salad x mystery black tomato bee pollinated crosses in time for grow out next summer.

Tall seedlings were choosen from dense plantings. Leaf shape and growth are different than other others from same seed.

I'm a bit puzzled. Shouldn't all the plants from F1 seeds be the same leaf form and growth pattern?

Or are you saying that you can distinguish the F1 seedlings from the open pollinated seedlings because of the different leaf form and growth pattern?

Of the latter, do the seedlings you selected as "F1" all express the same leaf form and growth pattern as each other?

Another question is how do you know that the mystery tomato with which the Lime Green Salad crossed, by bee pollination, was a black tomato?
