Here how the tomato looks today. You can see that it is beginning to wrinkle. As well it should as I bought it one month ago today. One month! It was the day after Christmas. After seeing my father off at Penn Station I went to the grocery store for lettuce and tomatoes so that I could have a fancy sandwich with my leftover roast pork.
I wonder how it has lasted so long? Bred for shelf life? Irradiation? This is why I tend to stick with in season produce from the farmer's market. Well, that and the two companions to this tomato only had a vague tomato-like flavor to them.
