Let us see that monster tomato that you have grown. Sitting on a scale would be appreciated.

That’s a whopper! @Spartanburg123 Neat looking tomato, too. Goat Bag? Going to have to look that one up. Is that a variety that you have grown before?

Howdy, I obtained these seeds from Renaissance Farms. This is my first time growing them! The flavor is supposed to be excellent, and particularly for sauces.

@Spartanburg123 My last tomato seed order was from them. Got a bonus pack of Linda’s Faux with my order. Saw the Goat Bag on their website, but must have overlooked it when I placed my order. Yours looks way better than their photos of Goat Bag do. Hard to nail down just what to order when there are so many choices. Renaissance has a lot of interesting varieties and a love for heart shaped tomatoes. Thanks for sharing.

Curtis is a tomato expert grower and is a fantastic human being as well, he has some really great seeds on there. Goat Bag is definitely unique, let's see how it looks regarding flavor.

Curtis Jackson, owner of Renaissance Farms, has the same name as rapper 50 Cent. Do you suppose....?

Here are some cut pictures- very meaty, excellent flavor, almost no seeds! One of the fruit I am naming "Goat Butt", and you can see why :lol:

@Spartanburg123 Those are some very big tomatoes. Did the Goat Butt taste as good as advertised?

It's certainly no record breaker, but this is the biggest tomato I've grown to date in this lifetime. Was supposed to be Hawaiian Pineapple, but didn't look much like the reference photos I've seen as it ripened.

Whatever it is, it was very tasty and seeds have been saved.
