As I was gazing on that PERFECT tomato, I quoted Keats, and my ever-witty sibling asked, "How's it going to be forever after you eat it?"
I doubt that any photograph can perfectly capture its essence. It's a "Big Boy".
This year my brother Norman is raising an heirloom tomato--the persimmon tomato--which was introduced to our country by Thomas Jefferson in 1781, but our all-time favorite tomato is the Rutgers which is also an heirloom tomato. Although the Big Boy is gorgeous, the Rutgers is more flavorful.
