Gardeners' Notes:

I planted these at the recommendation of the guy at the nursery. I was very pleased! They took about two weeks longer than the Roma's to ripen, but they were very big, and held their shape well. I used these for making sauce. I will be planting these next year!

Most of them were about the size of two Roma's put together, but probably 1/5 of them were four or five times as big. I got several that had to have weighed more than 1lb.
