The Secret (?) to Inducing Megablooms on Tomato Vines

If you are interested in growing really BIG tomatoes, weighing 3 lbs. or more, you will almost certainly need to focus on tomatoes which emerge from megablooms. That is, from fused ovaries, resulting in fused pedicles, blossoms, and eventually tomatoes that are lobed and often bizarre shaped.

Although some have claimed to have grown 3-, even 5-pound tomatoes from blossoms with a single ovary, I have yet to see such claims clearly documented. Some varieties, including Domingo (the current world record holder at 10.80 lbs.), produce enormous tomatoes from tightly fused blossoms. A big clue that you’re dealing with a potential megabloom is to look at the pedicle in a forming flower bud. If you see any grooving, this indicates two or more blossoms will be fused. You can often determine how many fused blossoms you are dealing with by counting the number of grooves: 1 groove indications a double, 2 grooves a triple and so on – see photos that follow.

The challenge for many competitive growers of giant tomatoes is, “How do I get the largest megablooms possible?” Obviously, you’ve got to start with the right genetics. I’ve seen the occasional fused blossom even among some cherry tomato varieties. But those are just interesting. To get the really huge tomatoes, you’ve got to consider which varieties have produced giant tomatoes for other growers.

For starters, consider the spreadsheet titled “DT Big Tomato List” published here: DT Shared Files. This lists over 320 varieties which have been grown to over 2 lbs. The tab labeled “3+ lb.” lists 34 varieties which have been documented to grow to at least 3 lbs. Seeds of nearly all of these varieties can be found at:

Delectation of Tomatoes, Seeds

After obtaining good genetic material (seeds), the next big question is, “How to induce young tomato seedlings to produce megablooms?” I will try to answer this question, briefly, based upon my experience.

My best year for growing giant tomatoes was 2014. That year, I incorporated up to 6″ of rich, homemade compost into the giant tomato beds (see blog posts from 2014). Lots of rich, balanced compost and feeding is critical for rapid growth of vines and tomatoes.

But for the moment, I want to focus on temperature. In 2014, I grew my biggest tomatoes in a heated high tunnel. Even from a very young age, seedlings were kept at very warm temperatures, sometimes exceeding 100° F. They were never allowed to be exposed to sub-50° temperatures.

This year I do not have access to a high tunnel. But I’ve done my best to not expose young seedlings to cold temperatures, and I have that 6,000 square-foot covering of black weed barrier fabric! During the heat of the afternoon on sunny, summer days, the surface is very hot to the touch. And, 18″ above the surface, I’ve often recorded temperatures in the 100-106° range.

Also, for the main tomato patch and the grow bags, I skipped the ‘potting up to 3-1/2″ pots phase’ and transplanted directly from plug trays into the garden. These plug trays were mollycoddled – taken in and out of the house many times to keep temperatures moderated and to adapt young seedlings to outdoor conditions.

It seems to me that at least these two factors are critical in the early stages of seedling growth:

1) Keep seedlings very warm and well fed so that they will grow very fast
2) Minimize root disturbance to avoid setbacks and delays in seedling growth.

With that said, I have not come close to scouring the entire tomato patch for megablooms. But here are a few that have been hard to miss as I water, weed, and monitor the growing plants –



This last, very impressive Domingo megabloom appears to be at least a 6x, paired with a 3X on the same peduncle. [Update August 1st – one of the most promising megablooms in years is now irrelevant, as the plant developed Curly Top Virus within the past 2 days]

Having good genetics, warm soil, plenty of rich organic matter, and megablooms is just the beginning, however. Next up for me is figuring out how to get these blossoms to produce lots of viable pollen, and then getting that pollen to successfully pollinate the flowers.

This is a very dry climate (6,200′ high desert), where relative humidity often drops below 10%. For July, daytime temperatures have often topped 95°, with it even warmer above the weed barrier fabric. As mentioned in blog posts over the past couple of years, obtaining pollen to hand-pollinate megablooms has been a huge challenge.

A high tunnel, covered with shade cloth, could greatly increase humidity and moderate the temperature somewhat. But I don’t have a high tunnel yet. Perhaps that will be the major project for 2023.

Check back for my next blog post to see how many of these megablooms have set fruit. Looking closely, you can see that one (Chudo Selektsyi) already has. On the other hand, many blossoms, including megablooms, have withered and died in the dry heat.

Tomato hornworms continue to cause some damage; but that amounts to less than 1/10th of 1%, as I continue to remove them by hand (at least 50 of them to date), and most tomato vines are growing so fast that the few hornworms I’ve missed cannot keep up.

Curly Top Virus (CTV – transmitted by beet leafhoppers) is rapidly becoming a serious problem, with at least 60 plants affected (meaning they are useless and will die), and more showing symptoms every day.

My solution is to purchase row cover fabric, cover the entire tomato patch, and keep it covered all season long unless I am working on a section. This should keep out the leafhoppers, five spotted hawk moths, grasshoppers, and other pests. Unfortunately, also the pollinators. But I don’t yet have very many of those anyhow.

To date (July 31, 2022), about 50 tomato varieties have produced ripe fruits. Most of these ripe tomatoes have come from leftover seedlings still in 3-1/2″ pots. The very first ones were Beaver Lodge Plum, Totushka, and Utyonok.

The first variety to ripen in the large pots was Sibirski Skorospelyi, with several others following. I am already back-logged with processing tomatoes for seed extraction! The first variety to set fruit in the main tomato patch was Early Ssubakus Aliana.

Even with such intense focus on growing tomatoes for seed saving, there are a few other types: peppers, basil (9 varieties this year), squash, lettuce, and some very late planted melons and cucumbers.

These Egyptian Walking onions seem to be very hardy. They were planted as bulbs in October, 2020 in a very poor location with very rocky soil (gravel), and received minimal care. I divided about 13 bulbs into about 50 cloves, and they are growing very well in grow bags now.

I’ve replaced around 15 plants in the main tomato patch, most of them due to CTV. I am running out of reasons to keep the backup seedlings in plug trays still alive, especially since there are still more than 700 extra, reasonably healthy seedlings still in 3.5″ pots.

I estimate that the combination of weed barrier fabric and drip hoses controls weeds on about 98% of the tomato patch. What a huge relief! Weeds have been the bane of my existence for many years. Here is what happens with water and no weed barrier –

Here is a short video of the tomato patch on July 21st, one week after transplanting completed.

Tomato Patch as of June 21, 2022

And here it is, one week later, following very rapid growth. About 80% of tomato plants have blossoms, or at least sizeable flower buds. This included young plants from seeds planted as late as June 6th.

Tomato Patch as of June 28, 2022

Next up: tie up and trellis tomato vines! The original deer exclosure is rapidly becoming impenetrable because of luxuriant growth of vines. And the earliest vines in the main tomato patch are filling in rapidly.

T-posts (56 of them) and baler twine have been purchased and await my investment of time and energy for installation.

= = = = = = = = = =
Update, August 1st –
Intense afternoon thunderstorm that was not in the forecast this morning! A very welcome relief, likely >1″ of rain in spots, very unusual in this area. Flash flood warning issued. Tomato patch seems to be fine. Another advantage of weed barrier fabric: no mud splashing onto plants!

Following is a bare list of the 913 varieties of tomatoes that I planted from seed in 2022. Please note:

THIS IS NOT A LIST OF SEEDS AVAILABLE

More than 50 varieties had zero germination, several that germinated have since died (mostly due to CTV), and I am not attempting to save seeds from another 30+ varieties. Also, several of these are not legitimate “varieties”; and hybrid, F1, F2 etc. status are not indicated here.

It will likely be at least December 1st before a draft list of “Fresh 2022” seeds will be ready, and December 31st before a final list is ready. See blog posts from October-December, 2021 to get an idea about why I am so “slow” with processing seeds and updating data.
