The 'Aussie' Heirloom Beefsteak Tomato: HUGE! 2 Pounds?

This is the first year I grew the 'Aussie' heirloom beefsteak tomato. It is outstanding and has now replaced the 'Delicious' variety as my favorite 16 to 32 ounce tomato. It matured a few days ago. It is definitely 85 days to maturity. It is sweet, huge, and no acidity. None. I included a quarter in the picture so you could have some perspective. A great tomato!

This tomato is in my hand. It is huge. The quarter just covers the spot where the stem was attached to the tomato. This is well over 16 ounce. It is a giant. It is the biggest tomato I have every grown. This tomato grew naturally. Naturally in the sense, I didn't prune fruit from the tomato plant as a way for 1 tomato to get all the nutrients and grow large. There are 5 other 1 pound plus tomatoes on the tomato right now.
