Tomato Tree That Produced World Record 32,000 Tomatoes

Samuel Reason - April 22nd, 2019

A Tomato tree has broken the world record and produced a record amount of tomatoes in one go: over 32,000 tomatoes from one plant harvested in one year. This tree broke the record for the most tomatoes harvested in one year from one single plant. And not only that it was done in a magical place: Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

In fact, it completely smashed the record, the previous listing in the Guinness Book of World Records was only 488 tomatoes from one stem found in the United Kingdom. This tomato tree in Walt Disney World weighed over 1000 pounds and the crown of the tree grew to over 530 square foot.

This is actually not so abnormal that you may think, because the plant in question is an Heirloom Tomato tree. This type of tomato plant takes a full one and a half years to grow to its full height, once that is reached, the fruit does not even start growing for another 7 months. And then past that point, the average harvest of an heirloom tomato tree is 14,000 tomatoes.

These types of tomatoes are generally a bit sweeter than normal and they also lack the genetic mutation that gives tomatoes a uniform red color. This means that the fruit is more tasteful but does mean you will have various different colors ranging from yellow to green.

As they are what is known as a true plant that has not been bred specifically from supermarkets, they generally have a shorter shelf life and are much less disease resistant than hybrid tomatoes. Which is why they are generally disliked for commercial farming. Still, they are grown for food or even just as historical interest.

An accomplishment that Disney showcases happily if you visit Epcot at Walt Disney in Orlando, Florida you will have the chance to ride a boat tour through the greenhouses and in the Land Pavillon.
