Well, I've finally finished harvesting for the 2017 season, though I still have lots of seed processing and database work to do. I managed to save seeds from 273 varieties this year. Among these, I think 57 of them have the potential to produce 3+ lb. tomatoes if pruned and tended properly.

Largest tomato this year, as well as largest officially recorded in Utah in 2017 is shown in the picture here: Domingo (3.420 Thurber 2017)(4.647 Thurber 2014).

Here's a list of the 33 varieties which grew to 1.5 lbs. or larger, most with little or no pruning or thinning and grown in poor to fair soil (apologies in advance for formatting problems - can't seem to figure it out here on BP):
Domingo -- 3.420 //
RW Cephei* -- 3.376 //
KY Cygni* -- 2.830 //
