The hardest part of growing this massive tomato was keeping the entire hydro-ponic project a secret from you my friends.

I have seen many large tomato pics here at GardenWeb, most taken next to pocket change, plates or other small items to help show scale.

With a tomato of this size I had to use more creative common household items that would hopefully give an impression of the GIANT size of this tomato to all GardenWeb members from countries across the world.

This first picture shows the official weigh-in of the Bullmato as I have come to call it.

(unfortunately due to its massive size I could not get the tomato and scale into the same frame)


In the first piture of Bullmato, I put it in our kitchen armoire.


At the table


On the stove (I'm famous for my goose as Mrs Bully will attest)


Here's Bullmato in the bathroom or 'water closet' for our commonwealth friends


And finally, here I am trying to sneak in after a night out of celebrating my success.

OMG! How funny! I'm glad it got re-posted, I felt so left out not knowing about the Bullmato when it was brought up in other posts! LOL

Suze...I love you!!!

Thanks for bringing back our beloved Bullmato!

I know a Sad Sac will trump that little 8 pounder this summer, but for now it is fun to look at and remember the 'original' monster 'mater!!

But I thought that Delicious was the biggest tomato!

By the way the lady with rolling pin has a smile on her face. Something seems wrong with that.

I just spied a doll house at the neighbors and since my wife baby sits for them and I am growing a large red cherry maybe I'll break the 9 pound barrier!
