Our Top Tips For Growing Tomatoes
Choose wisely. Plants with smaller fruit produce more in pots than larger varieties. Varieties labeled "determinate" are shorter and bushier, and don't require staking, but they only fruit for a short time, while those labeled "indeterminate" keep bearing until frost. Good container picks include the determinate heirlooms 'Sophie’s Choice' and 'Martino's Roma'; indeterminate heirlooms, like 'Black Prince,' 'Stupice,' and 'Green Zebra'; and the indeterminate hybrids 'Sweet Baby Girl' and 'Sweet 100' (shown).
