How tall can tomato plants get?

Hello,

    Last summer i decided to try and see how tall my tomato plants could get. I got some plants from the store and some i grew from seed. mostly Big boy. My plants igrew from see got to be  9 feet tall and had started them late. the one i got from the store ended up growing to 12 feet tall. Is this normal or can they get larger? i have them tied to stakes i made from 2x4's i cut up.

A large indeterminate tomato can get 30 feet but it takes about a year.  In a green house they usually remove the tomato plant after a year because the production goes down.

A determinate plant only grows to a certain size.

I saw one of those "how it's made" show about tomato growers and they did it by each plant was on a rope and grew strait up and later in the season they had to use motorized lifts to move down the rows to pick them.  Well over ten feet!
