LOL, that has got to be the ugliest tomato I have ever seen! Are you sure that came off of a tomato plant and wasn't some science experiment?



Congrats on 7 lbs of ugly. That has to taste sooooo good though.

That’s awesome Dan
Not going to win a beauty contest but that’s not the goal.
Mine above was smaller than I thought it would be, only 29 oz which is big for my garden for sure. I have a couple of even though singles. beauties, Domingo s that will be heavier even though from singles!
Still time to have others also

Nice Karen!!!! I'll have to grow that one!

My plant from Dan's seed was a bit sickly early on, and only produced one megabloom, which didn't pollinate completely. The plant has since taken off, so I'm hoping for some new fruit soon.

Domingo! I've grown that (two plants on one year, 2018, with black plastic). Mine weren't giant, though! But I did almost dry farm them, they got a kind of late start, and they probably needed more potassium. The plants were small. The fruit was maybe medium to large. It was midseason for me (not early midseason). I want to try it again now. Unfortunately, I didn't save seeds, because I wasn't impressed and I was worn out! Aargh. I wonder if I used all my previous seeds. Fortunately, I realized that was a mistake before I read this post (so, I've been trying to save seeds from everything, this year).
