What's the Biggest Producer So Far?

Today's harvest includes 11 Violet Jasper, 8 Yellow Perfection, 7 SunGold, 7 White Currant, 6 Principe Borghese, 6 Speckled Roman, 5 Stupice, 4 Brown Berry, 3 Husky Cherry Red, 2 Red Grape, 2 Taxi, 2 Nyagous, 2 Patio, 2 Black Cherry, 2 Topaz, 2 Green Grape, 2 Weeping Charlie (one 6 ounces), 2 Sweet Tangerine, 2 Red Currant(1), SunSugar, Michael Pollan, Lyn's Mahogany Garnet, Red Boar, Sweet 100, Plum Tigris, Red Currant(2), Jaune Flamme(1), Marianna's Peace, Dr. Wyche's Yellow(2) and Gajo de Melon for a total of 88 tomatoes weighing 6 pounds, 7.5 ounces.

No new tomatoes today, though a Toni's Round is maturing.

Per my wife, a pedestrian came by and talked her up about buying some of our tomatoes. Sure thing, we'll sell!

What's our biggest producer so far? Perhaps Violet Jasper. After all we've harvested 30 tomatoes over the last three days. Perhaps a smaller tomato like SunGold or Red Currant(1) or White Currant? Nope. The biggest producer so far is the not very sexy but good tasting Stupice, with 70 harvested so far. Violet Jasper is at 66, Red Currant(1) is at 63, White Currant(1) is at 61 and SunGold at 58 harvested tomatoes so far. All these other tomatoes will pass Stupice in total harvest as the month progresses.
