If you want good tomatoes, this book is excellent. It is a comprehensive on how to grow good healthy plants, keep them healthy, and produce a good harvest. IF you wish to 'grow for greatness' it covers that too. This is one of the best all around tomato books I've seen, and well worth the price! It covers EVERYTHING. Great pictures too. Give it a cover to cover read, you won't want to skip anything.

This book is just loaded with tips on growing big tomatoes. I have been successfully growing tomatoes for years, and now I want to take it to the next level.
I think this book, with it's clear explanations and beautiful illustrations, will help me to achieve my goal of growing giant tomatoes.
The book contains detailed step-by-step instructions on growing tomatoes. Whether you intend to grow eating tomatoes, or are trying to get you name in THE GUINESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS, this book is a must.
However, the jury is still out, I will know more next spring when I see the results of applying this information.

Marv Meissner is a friend of mine whom I met when I first started to grow giant pumpkins. He has made the development of new tomato crosses for giants a lifetime project. This book details his success. It is a guide appropriate for both the beginner and the expert, giving details on processes from soil preparation to artificial pollination and grafting. Marv has won several competitions for his ultra-heavy creations, but he never hesitates to give credit to his mentor: Tomato Lady Minnie Zaccariah.
