Default This is my new personal best

Brought this one in yesterday. I had to cut it out of the plant. This is the biggest/heaviest tomato I have ever raised. The variety is Cheste which is a Spanish heirloom. Can't believe I got almost to 4 lbs. It is from a megabloom and has 4 sections grown together.

Carolyn, I use that one because it was free, and because it would identify my pictures of my tomatoes almost like a trademark. I checked its accuracy with some calibrated weights and it is dead on thruout its 10 Kg range.

Had a feeling Cheste would do well in MuddyBucket-land.

Excellent work Ted!

I absolutely LOVE Cheste, from Valencia in Spain, my seeds from Paco in Spain and Neil L also gets seeds from him as well and agrees.

Gerardo, didn't I send you that one?Or maybe it was someone who got it from Neil's SSE Annual Yearbook Listing of it
or an Older seed offer of mine?

Carolyn, where the chipmunks are eating the small ripe fruits on the Bonnie Plants that are small fruited,which is most of them,like Tami_G F1 hybrid ,GULP, maybe it's for the best. But there is ONE Cherokee Purple plant, WOW, a new one for me,NOT.Next year no Bonnie stuff and back to normal as to a grow list.
