Yes,  this happens if the youngster lives with mom beyond the usual weaning time. It doesn' t seem to cause any harm it just looks silly.  Eventually mom will spit him off, like hey you,  grow up already.

Razz Your response was funny - the spitting part.  Wink 
I have a male llama that pushed the nursing issue till he was that size too, maybe even bigger.  He is now a 4 yr old gelded adult and I'll tell you this. If he is in a little mood and doesn't want to be handled he goes right over to his Mom.  And sometimes Mom will come right over to us when we are handling him, as if it's her got to job to overlook the situation. On the other hand I've seen her act like she's telling him off in a way and chase him right out of the barn.

Two weeks later to this.   It's very hot this afternoon so I'll let it cool off overnight and take it off the vine tomorrow morning and weigh it----- I'll bet its over a pound and  1/2.

It looks scrumptious!

Today, I harvested two cracked, nearly-ripe tomatoes and will just have to wait and see how much can be salvaged.

So Landarch--- using your pricing---this--could --be -a-  $7.00 tomato ??   Laughing 



The really weird thing is 99% of all the other tomato plants still have green immature fruit.

Thanks greatgranny and Capecoddess
No there isn't any secret, greatgranny.   Just mels mix with homemade compost.  At planting time I put my home grown worm castings in the bottom of the hole and rock dust.  A few weeks ago I top dressed with more compost and worm castings.  The variety Hillbilly, holds the worlds record for size, 9 pounds or something I forget at the moment.  I guess the genetics for size are in there.  For the most part the weather has been doing a number on the plants and I don't think things look anywhere as vigorous as last year.  This tomato is an anomaly compared to what I'm seeing on all the other plants.   I keep pulling off I think blighty-looking leaves on most of the plants too.  Things look stunted compared to last year.

CC I'm sorry your tomato season is not up to par.  I'm going to keep my fingers crossed but I haven't got a lot of faith this year.   Humid 85 to 90 degrees with so many nights in the 50's is not nice.  Wanna talk peppers??  Biggest fruit is 2 inches.

that looks like a really nice tomato...I picked a few that large early-on but they were not smooth on the bottom (maybe too much rain). 

Marry that bad boy with a pound of bacon, lettuce, and Miracle Whip and have a BLT party.
