Big Tomatoes of 2015

On 7-23-2015 I picked a tomato that can almost be categorized as “BIG” – from one of my few successful crosses last year! :

Cross (F2)(1.988 DT 2015)(2.414 DT 2014) [Hoy (~3 Kott 2011) X Delicious (6.51 Meisner 2011)]

I just picked my first 3 pounder of the year!

There three small tomatoes showing real promise.  On these three plants I pruned off everything else and stopped all growth:

Note that when looked at closely, you can clearly see the remnants of the original fused blossom and thus determine that each of these was from a 4-6 X megabloom, perhaps more!
