Michael's Portuguese Monster
Monster-sized (most in the 1.5 lb. range), clear-skinned, slightly ribbed tomatoes with excellent flavor and very positive reviews. Large (to 17+ feet tall), healthy, very productive, regular leaf vines produce well from 90+ days. All sources trace to a 4.5 lb. fruit purchased from a market in Portugal in 2006 by Michael Johnson from the United Kingdom, so this is likely a case of an already named variety getting a second name - but how to track this down?? Pictured specimens weighed up to 2.66 lbs.
