Maybe this is not such a rare occurence, but definietly a first for me!

If not obvious from the picture: the end of the fruit truss continued to grow as a sucker producing new leaves and some flowers. Pretty unusual sight.

It sometimes happens with my tomatoes too.

What's the variety, Andras? Indeterminates do it. Unusual for determinates.

Pretty normal, I would say.  Just snap it off at the node.

Are you removing all the side-shoots, when they are small?

..happens on mine all the time... that is, if you are a bit lax in noticing it happening in the first place, as usually I would snap that off before it got very far...
