Giant Tomato

There was a 7.325 pound tomato grown in Canada by Phil Hunt and his wife. The tomato was the largest grown this year in competition and was weighed at a GPC Weighoff. It was big but not a new world record, That record is held by Gordon Graham who grew his 7+ pound tomato from an heirloom variety, Delicious. No one since then has been able to grow anything really big from Delicious. Phil Hunt received his seeds from Timm Brandt who also resides in Canada. Timm had been growing from some seeds he bought in a packet at a local store and had given Phil some seeds out of one of his tomatoes. Guess what, they were the variety Delicious. Not many people here grow for size but I thought for those who do I would pass this on.
