Have you ever seen a tomato with a “nose” on it? Such weird shaped tomatoes may have what looks like horns as well. What causes tomato noses? Well, it’s a physiological/genetic disorder that occurs in about 1 out of every 1,000 plants. Basically, the problem arises when the fruit is still microscopic. A few cells divide incorrectly and make an extra fruit locule. When you slice into a tomato, they have 4 or 6 obvious segments, which are called locules. As the tomato grows, the genetic mutation that occurred when it was microscopic grows with the fruit until eventually you see a mature tomato with a ‘nose’ or horns. The environment has to do with the genetic mutation. Extended temps of above 90 degrees F. (32 C.) and over 82-85 F. (27-29 C.) at night cause this deformity. It doesn’t necessarily affect the entire plant; in fact, usually only one or two fruits are affected. This also happens more often on older heirloom varieties. The good news is that it will quit happening when temps moderate and the resulting fruit is quite amusing as well as perfectly edible.

Fruits and vegetables often grow weird. You're just not used to it because they don't often sell deformed ones in supermarkets. Grow cucumbers, they usually come out spiky!!! Haha

Most of the tomatoes are fine it's just this one plant that's playing up. I have three cucumber plants too and the fruit is okay and not spiky.

Perfectly normal, you just don't see them in supermarkets as they only want "normal" ones.
It will taste exactly the same as the other tomatoes on the plant.
