Does anyone have an idea what the state record or largest official tomato grown in Kentucky is? Thanks in advance, Scott

Scott, I briefly just looked at the last 3 years that the GPC has listed.
Last year, Joseph Young of Paducah had a 5.75# fruit.
2019 & 2020, no Ky fruit listed over 3#.
So I don’t know if 5.75 is the Ky state record is but that seems like a good bet.
You could look at some of the earlier years & see if there are any larger.

I agree with Steve. From what i could gather it's 5.75lbs, Joe Y. from 2021.
