hmmmm....what happened...of the last 8 diary entries of his...all I recall from reading them was he had 5.95 domingo x 6.23 megazac cross completed this year. Look at the varieties at the top of the GPC tomato weighoff results this year....New wixom cross...I am so interested. His crosses have so shook up the tomato world. I have no doubt wixom...your super big year is soon coming.What are you going to call the 5.95x6.23? It is 50% domingo, 25% mega marv,25% big zac......

This is a tough one wixom....using part of the name of one variety and part of the name from the second variety worked for the first crosses. The cross of the crosses becomes more difficult.... MegamuttD and MegamuttZ was the first solution. What do you call the ancester of the WR (domingo) x a cross of the megamarv and big zac. Come on tomato growers...you are very creative...toss out some ideas for wixom to name his new baby.

Hammer x slammer tomato !!! That might be next years cross with the 9.65 slammer !!!

I suggest " ouch " for a name. Because when you drop a big one on a finger or toe you cry ouch. But Porkchop's cry may be a variation. :>) Jim

I think that spudder was suggesting "Big Megadom" to show that it is a megadom with big zac in it. I think that would lead to variety confusion though. Some growers would forget the big part on the gpc form.
Do you have the weight of the new cross tomato? If you wish, I will enter it into the tomato data base so the genetics can be tracked thru time. I now you dont like that task. I think I entered the 1.20 Konieczny 2016 in there to connect the genetics of the Megazac.

You should probably decide the variety name before its gets entered though.

Looks like the 4.28 Spaziani 2018 needs to get entered also...Big Marley has had an impact and is not connected

thanks wixom...I converted the 11.5 oz to pounds to come up with

2.72 Konieczny 2019

I entered it into the data base- tomato.giantstogrow.com ...real easy since we had both the 5.95 and the 6.23 already there with the links to the genetics.

Take a look at it when you have a chance. Let me know if something is incorrect.
