Matt's Wild Cherry Will Shatter My High Harvest Number

Today's harvest includes 60 Matt's Wild Cherry, 7 SunGold(1), 4 Husky Cherry Red(2), 3 SunSugar, 3 Husky Cherry Red(1), 3 Sweet 100, 3 Honkin' Big Black Cherry, 2 Large Pink Anna(2), 2 Persimmon (6 ounces, 6 ounces), Garden Peach, Snow White, Kellogg's Breakfast, Oaxacan Jewel(2), Red Zebra, Green Grape, Large Pink Anna(1), Aunt Ruby's German Green(1), Vorlon, Green Zebra(1) and Golden Mama for a total of 98 tomatoes.

I did a little research last night. Our largest one year harvest total for an individual plant was 1945 Red Currant tomatoes in 2008. Matt's Wild Cherry (currently at 1876 harvested tomatoes) will surpass that amount, perhaps by the end of the week. And we still have 4 1/2 months to go!

We've now harvested 450 Husky Cherry Red(2) tomatoes and over 250 SunGold(1) tomatoes (252)!

I didn't notice yesterday that Quedlinburger Fruehe Liebe and Green Grape reached 100 harvested tomatoes.
