Giant Tomatoes From Single Blossom With Good Flavor?

butterflylion(7bGA)March 30, 2012

What are some varieties that produce good tasting tomatoes that are extra large from a single blossom? I read when some giant tomatoes form from clusters of blooms that grow fused together. I would rather have the traditionsl tomato shape and grow some that are maybe 2 lbs. or so with good flavor. What varieties would be good to try?

What you describe is common and most any of the so-called 'beefsteak' varieties will meet that need - depending on the growing conditions provided - including the one named Beefsteak.

And there are lots of them to choose from. Also many of the varieties with "Giant" as part of their name ie. Giant Belgium and German Giant.

Pruden's Purple was my largest and best tasting tomato last season. It never seems to disappoint.

The variety "Delicious " is the current record holder with a tomato over 7 pounds

I had a Gold Medal tomato at a little over 3 lbs. last year. It had good flavor.
I have heard that Big Zac is the best tasting of the HUGE tomatoes.
Grandpa Charlie & Grandpa Willie are excellent tasting BIG tomatoes.
