Seeds from the 6.55 Rodebaugh tomato have been harvested, germination tested, and are now available. The fruit weighed in at 16.5% heavy to chart estimation and contained a seed count far far greater than average for a Domingo variety. The 6.55 Rodebaugh (8.48 Sutherland x Open) will be sent to clubs and sold online at megapumpkins.com All proceeds from sales on MegaPumpkins will go to fund the Mountain State Giant Growers Club and the Wild & Wonderful Weigh Off. Now, the exciting part! The largest tomato grown and listed with the GPC registry in 2024 from the 6.55 Rodebaugh will be awarded a $500 bounty. That's right, $500 to the top fruit no matter how you acquired the seeds. So, support your local Club at auction and the MSGG through MegaPumpkins.com and grow a $500 monster!
