Altitude (to)maters (Scott)

Colorado

This is for a single circumference not 3-way. I have problems just getting one measurement much less three lol. I found this formula in the old posts on here. SEAMSFASTER developed it. I took the formula and entered the tomato weight in 1/2" increments.

This is a bit more accurate than the chart everyone links from marvs book. It has served me well and figure others would find it useful. Most tomatoes come in +or- 10% of this

Although the density multiple changes per grower and their individual conditions, it’s probably worth separating variety for generic chart for main varieties e.g Big Zac vs Domingo.

With me here a Domingo will always weight light vs a Big Zac for same measurements. Others the same?
