Kelloggs Breakfast ?

MarshallkeyJune 24, 2013

I started tomato seeds for the first this year . I'm think I might have messed up somehow when replanting the little seedlings into there bigger cups. I had about 15 different kinds of tomatoes .
I've never grown Kelloggs Breakfast so am not familiar with the plants . The plants in the garden are huge and beautiful, 5 feet tall already with 1 in. diameter stems. Yet something doesn't seem right. The blooms are in clusters of anywhere from 5 to 8 blooms . I cant imagine big tomatoes having blooms that close . I dont know how the plant would hold all that weight or how they would get that big clustered together like that .
Has anyone grown them and is it possible that they do grow in clusters like that ?
They look like cherry tomatoes clusters although I didnt start any cherry tomatoes.
I guess theres always the chance that the place I got my seeds from messed up on there seed packing also .

Just because there is a bunch of flowers, it doesn't mean that they will all be tomatoes. My beefsteak flowers bloom in bunches, but might only set 2-4 together. And yes, a cluster of 3 or 4 large tomatoes can get heavy and might need a little extra support.

Thx for the info edweather ! If in someway it is a Kelloggs Breakfast and all flowers do all make tomatoes would it possiblbly be a good idea to prune some of the blooms or some of the small tomatoes I've read that some growers do this on some plants to get bigger tomatoes. I'm not trying to win a giant tomato contest. I'm just hoping to get the natural production the plant will give.

If it is KB and you want natural production, then don't remove any blossoms at all.

I do keep such data and KB usually produces 2-3 large fruits/cluster with each fruit being a pound or more.

I've had a cluster of 5 weigh about seven pounds. I strung up some extra support.

Some consider Kellogg's Breakfast to simply be the best.

In my garden, it is perhaps the one tomato variety with the most variability in flavor. It can be anywhere from good, to very good, to excellent, all from the same plant, with only about half a week between pickings.
