I have a Cherry Tomato Bush growing next to three potato Plants. My potato Plant has Cherry Tomato Like fruits hanging the same manner as Cherry Tomato's except that they are totally dark green. They are about 3/4 to 1 inch in Diameter. Both the Tomato and potato had blooms at the same time. One Fruit fell off and I placed it in the sun. More than a week now and it has not turned as the Green Cherry tomato does. What is this? I am quite new to Gardening. Thank You for any information you may have.

Thank You. I have never saw this before and have never even heard of it. Is this native to England? Or native to all potato's?

All spuds should be the same, my father has had loads of seed on his this year,mine only had a few.
think its the way that you breed new types of spuds, by cross pollinating the flowers.
