Tomato Tidbits:

  • The heaviest tomato on record weighed 7 lbs 12 oz. It was harvested in Oklahoma in 1986.
  • The largest tomato tree grows at Walt Disney’s greenhouse and yields 32,000 tomatoes per year. You can see it on the “Living with the Land” boat ride.
  • The tomato is both the official state fruit and state vegetable of Arkansas.
  • Tomato juice is the official state beverage of Ohio.

Our customer and neighbor, Tip Top Canning, concentrates on one thing….tomatoes.  In 1924, the Timmer family purchased a cannery in Tippecanoe City, OH and started canning tomatoes that were grown in the fields surrounding what is now Tipp City, OH, near our second largest terminal and shop facility.  While the Timmer family continues to distribute under their Tip Top name, they also private label tomato products for food distributors of all sizes around the country. 

Congratulations to our customer Tip Top Canning on their continued success!
