More Sugar Cherry Tomatoes

I did some more work on the Sugar Cherry Tomatoes today:
It still needs some detail with colored pencil, especially up top, but i just needed a tomato break.
So, I don't really have any fun facts about the sugar cherry to share, but here is a bit about a tomato record from wikipedia that is kind of fun and crazy:
The massive "tomato tree" growing inside the Walt Disney World Ressort's experimental greenhouses in Lake Buena Vista, Florida may be the largest single tomato plant in the world. The plant has been recognized as a Guinness World Record Holder, with a harvest of more than 32,000 tomatoes and a total weight of 522 kg (1,150 lb). It yields thousands of tomatoes at one time from a single vine. Yong Huang, Epcot's manager of agricultural science, discovered the unique plant in Beijing, China. Huang brought its seeds to Epcot and created the specialized greenhouse for the fruit to grow. The vine grows golf ball-sized tomatoes which are served at Walt Disney World restaurants.
I'm not a big fan of Disney World, but that is pretty neat.
