What is the big difference between what one supplier states as a size expectation vs. another supplier for the same tomato?? Mr. Stripey is one I'm curious about. One co. says 6-8 ounce fruit and another I just looked at says 1-2 pound fruit. Is it more advertising hype or is it different strains of the same tomato or is it hybridizing of the tomato??
According to Bonnie, my Parks Whoppers should be 14-16 ounces, but the biggest I've gotten is about 10 ounces. I know there are so many variables in growing conditions it would be very hard to pin down an average. If we get some huge fruit, are they anomalies, or should we be expecting them as normal?
