I gave some seed to Linda when we had an enjoyable visit. Seed has already
been saved for next year. My largest this year was just under 2 pounds. Some
neighbors who bought plants from me in the spring are having a size
competion. They have been giving those Hungarian Paste TLC all summer. Last
I heard they had toms  well over 3 pounds. Boy, you could make submarine
sands with those.:-) The best part is the very meaty centers with no cores
and the flavour is excellant. (Bill & Chris Loke)[Z4/5 on a good day]
