Based on this observation I decided that potato leaf tomato plants are the indica/WLD plants of the tomato world and regular looking tomato plants are the sativas.
You may be onto something there
Last year none of my tomatoes did very well at all but Brandywine was the worst, zero tomatoes.
The summer here is just too hot, i'm still learning but i realize i need to germinate them inside and plant them out much earlier.
