Seems to me that the world record for the largest tomato ever grown was of the Delicious variety. I need to know if that record still stands and if so, how large was it and how much did it weigh? Carolyn? Anyone?
As Carolyn said, it's widely contested, but still - anywhere near that is scary enough. My friend had a group of three tomatoes on her watermelon that pulled the entire plant aver and snapped it right off. On the bathroom scale they weighed just over 14 pounds! That was my second year of gardening, and I've aspired to match that with limited success.
