WOW 260g !! One slice in a sandwich n you’re done lol. Mine didn’t get that big. Tomatoes thrives in heat n central to north of Alberta gets cold fast in sept. We had snow about an hour from here last week. Couldn’t see the grass. Melted fast though. I grew another kind this year so I don’t waste my old ones. I might build some sort of a little green house next year. Will see....
BTW, how did your dad find them?
Look! Finally starting to look like tomatoes, and they are really big! I was a little worried that there were so few of them, but one of these will make a good-sized tomato sallad!

@helsonwheels Look - they're getting bigger and bigger. This one is 325 g! It's not from the 150-year-old seed but from one of the other seeds and the shape is a little different. As you can see, Castor is very proud of our tomatoes (the tomato plants are right behind him)

WOW. 464g is a pound n you’re already at 325 which is still massive! Good job!!! The green thumb lady......Or is Castor fertilizing them ? Hahahahaha
You dad going to weigh his in? If so let me know what his weigh in is... curious
No, no, Castor is only admiring, not fertilizing, the tomatoes! My dad's tomatoes are not that big, more big plum size. His plant has more tomatoes but less size, and my plants seem to have fewer tomatoes but bigger (although I think the remaining ones will not be bigger than the ones I've shown here). Next year, I'll ask my brother to grow these too (I'm saving seeds...) so let's see how big they get then!
Good spread the seeds out as long the keep some seeds going would be good. Soil is the key. Throughout winter, I always throw my coffee grinds, egg shells on the snow n when it melts in spring sinks into the soil. Then we turn the soil...
“No, no, Castor is only admiring, not fertilizing, the tomatoes” lolll
Coffee and egg shells would have been great but we have such a tiny garden (30 sq m) with neighbours on the other side of the fence, so getting a bokashi compost started would probably be a better option here. I've thought of that for several years... so perhaps will happen sometime in the future
@cefe13 wow nice!!! Yes they are really shaped weird but they are so meaty. We both live in a long winter country so I sure get it lol
How did you find as taste the ones that ripped? Also your dad?
Why I’m going to do for next year is start them much earlier. I bought a big tent with special light to start early next spring. Here we still can get snow in May n tomatoes needs heat. Will see..
