2020 – Largest Tomato

Today we picked the largest tomato of the year. Marizol Gold always produces a few large fruit but this year it seems to have excelled itself. 846 grams (1lb 14 oz in old money) on a plant that has been looking “poorly” for a couple of weeks.

As I’ve said a few times in recent posts, whatever it is that has affected my tomatoes this year (wilt or bacterial canker) made me fear for this fruit as others have been dropping off before they’re fully ripe. (I think because of lack of water) but, with a bit of extra molly coddling, this one has survived. What we do with it in the way of eating, I’m not quite sure, its tipped us over 31kg of fruit so far (and more yet to come but nothing like this one).
