Yes, Texas Wild tomatoes.  The vines will go 20-25 feet, but the fruits,
which are in the tens of thousands per plant, are pea size.  Their taste is
fantastic--like a sweet-tart burst of tomato essence.  If interested, I'll
send you a few seeds.  You only need a few.

If you are interested in growing 20 feet tall Better Boys or such, get "How
to Grow World Record Tomatoes," by Charles H. Wilber.  You can find it on   Mr. Wilber's methods are common-sense organic methods.  But,
let me caution you, Mr. Wilber is retired and makes growing tomatoes an 8 to
9-hour-a-day job.

Merry Christmas to all, and may your tomatoes heavenly in 2001,
