You gotta try to bring that good girl up to the washington state fair. Totally green. Can she can make it? If you cant bring her in one beautiful piece no big deal just tape her together with hundred dollar bills and everything will go real smooth:) You got this buddy the finish line aint far.

After a certain diameter it is required that a GPC rep be there to witness the harvest and weighing. I am considering bringing something else there however.

Rick, your center measurement went down in week...it went from 22 to 21. I am guessing you picked just a little bit different of a spot to measure at. Still really good numbers 30-21-28 for a multiplied total of 17649. Where it is at now...mFactor of .00046(porkchops 8.22) gives est weight of 8.11, mFactor of .00058(Dan S 9.44 WR) gives est weight of 10.23 pounds. With current measurement..you need mFactor of .00054 to break the world record. Keep it growing..The bigger it gets..the lower mFactor you need.

They will be a bit pithy/ lighter when green right? I forget if mobeymike figured out the gain between green and red. I look forward to updates. I am sooo ready to guess her weight!

Thanks for the math Robert. Yes, that middle part isn't easy to measure, let alone the whole tomato. I tried to pick the narrowest area. I'll measure it again tomorrow to see if its growing and what rate.

"After a certain diameter it is required that a GPC rep be there to witness the harvest and weighing. "

This is only for virtual weight off.
you can bring what you want to a GPC sanctioned event, but don´t need witness of the harvest.
