Congrats on your Big Rainbow. They are on my short list for next year pending the outcome of this years Hawaiian Pineapples. They are big and green, but not ripe yet.

Nice! Hillbilly is similar in color and a potato leaf - I plan on trying the Hillbilly next year. How did your Big Rainbow taste?

Wow, I too would love to know how much that tomato pictured weighs.

Since you asked, here are a couple pictures of my biggest yet - a 1lb, 10 oz Kellogg's Breakfast tomato.

I have a few Supersteak tomatoes on the vine that look like they might get bigger than this one, so hopefully more pictures to come!

I don't eat tomatoes I just grow them. Lol. And my mom hasn't eaten it I'll be sure to let you all know!

17.2 ounces!

Now, it may not sound like a record, BUT it was grown in a 6 gallon (maybe 7, I'm not quite sure) self-watering container on a balcony.

It's Cherokee Purple. The name sounded pretty good when I was picking out a plant at Walmart. If I new it would get to be over 8 ft tall, I would have never bought it. But, for whatever reason, it's deliriously happy, and it's been producing like crazy. The only problem is it's taking up a ton of space on the small balcony. But it's worth it :)
