So my claim to fames are a Russian 117 at 1 lb 5 oz and a Rebel Yell at 1 lb 6.6 oz. I’ve had a lot of fused fruits and mega blooms this year. Not sure if it’s the heat or what, but I actually culled a few of them off.

Since my new WR is a domingo, and there was an 8.22 domingo weighed last year,I would say that the domingo is edging out the big zac,but either one is great, sounds like a great idea to have a contest, as long as I don't get slapped with a 4 or 5 pound handicap, lol ,who's in charge? This should be fun!!

That's awesome!! Just like it should be.
I have read about many giant vegetables being tossed after the show/competition.

These are my two biggest this year. Nothing compared to Dan but still nice Both are Delicous and are from own seeds, which go back to the 4,62 Fulk. Still like the strain, but almost no megas. Might try something else next year.

This is in grams, I understand. Wow, great size for simple blooms.

Hello! Anybody home? Just checking. Everything is frozen here. Four or 5 months before any action in the garden. I am sleeping with the bears until it gets warm.

I’m going to try for one. Won’t be a giant but it would be fun to grow one bigger than my personal biggest which is just over two pounds.
Should I grow it in my small greenhouse in a pot or outdoors in ground?

Karen -I'd recommend that you plant it outside, they need a large rooting area. If they are in a pot it may be to warm for the roots to perform optimally.
