Megabloom, Michael’s Portuguese Monster

2010 is the first year I got serious about trying to grow giant tomatoes.  One promising variety was Michael’s Portuguese Monster.  On 10-06-2010 I noticed an impressive 4X megabloom starting to open and decided to take daily pictures.  Of course that’s too late in the season to hope for a big tomato to grow and mature.  But just as a homage to megablooms, here’s a series of pics from 10-06 to 11-10-2010.  After that, hard frost made growing tomatoes outdoors impossible.
