It’s hard to tell wixom..I’m kinda judging “on the hoof” with this one. I did throw the tape over the north South Pole last week to get the 28…here’s a video of this fruit on the 5.30 butler seed just before it flashed

What were the actual measurements or did you bother to check them, I know it's really hard to get accurate numbers while still on the plant!

Great job fellow Canknucklehead. Send me the big winners address and I'll mail him 10 seeds from the 5.30 Butler

Porkchop

Holy crap!!…Thanks John!.. I really think the butler seed could do something special. Vtjohn had the closest weight for first place. They will rock those seeds.!!!…And thanks wixom..I wasn’t fooled too bad, it just went light..on the plant was 31 30 22.5 and I could see an area where I could get a little less on the smallest diameter. Off the plant was 31 30.5 21. Shape burned me which is why I normally don’t go with the “doughnut “ shaped fruits but this was a big friggin doughnut..and I love doughnuts….All around awesome.. giant tomato, didn’t have to bother anyone… and still a few 5 pounders about to get picked . And as I always say, if a 5-6 pound Domingo does not excite you?..you probably hate bLT’s. Got one left that’ll be a few weeks so I guess I’ll just sit around and let butler sandbag me and the rest of us. I’m hearing rumors of some good ones out there..good luck everyone! Keep ‘em green!!!! Gmay, breeb…get in touch!!
