Tomato size will depend on both the variety selected and the growing conditions under which the fruit is produced. There is indeed a tremendous variety running from the small clustered currant or grape-types to the huge beefsteaks such as Mortgage Lifter which can sometimes be as large as 4 pounds apiece. Burpee offers many varieties in both its regular and annual catalogs. They can be ordered by calling Burpee at 1-800-888-1447.
