Yes, that tomato weighs two pounds! It's the biggest tomato we've ever grown here, and the interesting thing is that all the tomatoes on that plant are that big. There are four other "white giant" tomato plants, but the fruit on those plants all weigh about a pound. I'm thinking someone spilled the chicken manure where this one was planted.
These tomatoes make a delicious cream of tomato soup. I'll have to post the recipe and a picture next time Katherine makes it. Heirloom tomato soup is one of her specialties.
