I've harvested about a dozen tomatoes over 2 lbs., but nothing over 3 lbs. - yet. Today is the Utah Giant Pumpkin Grower's annual weigh-off. I have a green tomato that measured to 2.81 lbs. last time I checked (one week ago). If it has started turning this morning, I'll cut it off for the competition. It's the variety RW Cephei - one of the crosses I've been working on since 2014 and named after a giant star, At this point, it doesn't look like I'll have anything else with a chance of breaking 3 lbs. this year. I'll post pictures after I get on top of seed saving - 325 tomato varieties this year.
