79". I have two rows of seven plants all spaced at about 36". In other years I get around 48" of plant height. I have no idea what created these giants but the tomatoes are unreal huge too. Some of these plants have tomatoes set at five feet up. I have no idea how I'll get the picking done when they ripen as the 14 plants make an absolute wall of green. I've never seen Romas grow like this and the fruits are definely shaped like Romas, just three times as large as they normally get. My ten Rutgers are growing normally in a bed only feet away from these so I'm at a loss as to what got into these plants. Sure getting some attention of the walkers in the park though.
