Seeds of world's biggest tomato plant to be sold in the U.K. this spring

PMA SmartBrief | Jan 26, 2015

U.S. and U.K. breeders have spent the past 20 years developing the Gigantomo tomato, with plants that can grow up to six-feet tall and boast up to 11 tomatoes, each large enough to serve four people. The fruits can grow up to 10 inches wide and weigh as much as 3 pounds. Seed company Burpee sold the seeds in the U.S. last year under the name SteakHouse, which the EU ruled as an unacceptable name, prompting the change to Gigantomo. The seeds will be available for sale in the U.K. this spring. Daily Mail (London), The (01/23)
