Dear Dennis,

I found where you can get "monster" tomato seeds, but they don't mention
anything about flavor.   I was looking at an internet site that talked about
an annual contest they have in the State of New Jersey in which an award is
given to the individual who raises the largest tomato each year... the URL
is below.

At this URL:
I found: Monster Tomato Seeds (grows tomatoes up to 1kg) - 20 seeds $4.00

Here's the URL to the New Jersey Contest:
You can also get free seeds from winners of the contest.
