Potato vs. Regular Leaf
June 2, 2008
I finally got around to taking a close-up of the difference between potato and regular leaves on tomatoes.
Regular leaf (RL) is what most people are familiar with when it comes to tomato plants. The edges of the leaf are serrated or “toothed” as some would say.
RL of a Black Plum:
Potato leaves have a smooth edge and are usually larger in size.
PL of a Black Pear:
Once you start growing tomatoes from seed you’ll notice that the leaf type is often included in the description. This way, you’ll know if your seeds have been cross-pollinated if the incorrect leaf type shows up.
