I have a tomato plant 9 inches tall with 10 ripe ( almost) toms on it. Is it a record ?
I’d send a photo but can’t just now.



They must be the grape tomatoes. 10 tomatoes sounds about right. Enjoy them!

No its not a record, its a tomato plant....(sorry!)

Aw dammit, I thought it was quite an achievement. Thanks.

It is! You got 10 tomatoes. Fry them up with bacon & eggs, a dash of salt & pepper.

Tomato cucumber salad, bruschetta...I'm with you, Hank! I'd be feeling pretty chuffed--assuming I'm interpreting that term correctly! Even if it isn't a record.

Thanks B, and chuffed is appropriate Tug.

Good! I like to speak the language, but "in America we haven't spoken it for years." :)

I think I've set a record for wasting the most time and effort growing Sweet Millions tomatoes. There are millions of them and they're 5 feet tall but not sweet at all! If anyone can recommend sweet cherry tomatoes for next year I'd be delighted.

Cammomile I can! Try growing Sun Gold - the most popular cherry tomato in the world. Very productive plants and disease resistant - lots of large clusters hanging down. Very rich sweet slightly acidic flavor. Just delicious. I was sad when the cold weather took out my plants. I would harvest a basket of cherry tomatoes almost daily. I can't go back to eating grocery store tomatoes. lol

Sungold for me next year, my small ones were poor.

Thanks Bathgate and Hank. The plants were given to me by a neighbour so I feel a bit mean (he doesn't like tomatoes). They certainly are prolific but I'll have a go at Sungold next year. There's no point in me buying seeds as my garden is too small and there's only me and the other half.
