Hello,

I'm growing a few tomatoes from seed and their leaves are so far rather un-tomato like.

Is this something some varieties do?

P.S The seeds are from a tomato I was given from a farm, not from a packet where I could see any information on this variety.

There are two types of tomato leaves. The regular leaves and yours which is called a potato leaf variety tomato. Almost all are heirloom varieties.

There are a number of potato-leaved varieties; one which is quite popular is "Outdoor Girl", which I'm having a go at myself this year.
Another is "Tamina" which I believe is called "Matina" in N.America, and which I found to be very nice.
