I see ads for 6 lb. tomatoe seeds . As a novelty I'd like to try growing a giant tomatoe. Has anyone had any experience with these and if so, did you
have any luck. If anyone has had success,seed type and info on where to buy would be appreciated.

Never saw a 6lbs pounder that would be huge!

One "sees" all sorts of claims out there. Most are hype and/or inedible. 2 lb. tomatoes are fairly common but more than that are often fused fruit, deformed, ugly and rot before ripening.

Tomatofest.com has a nice mixed "giant" variety selection and his article explains the role of pruning to one fruit, excessive feedings, etc.

Dinner Plate is the only one I have ever tried of his selections. Giant Belgium is another good one.
