Tomato – Goodhearted Tomato
Semi - determinate tomatoes do not grow as large as indeterminate tomatoes. They will need to be kept from getting excessively dry. Consistent watering and regular fertilization will be key to keeping your plant in full production mode. They can be grown in containers, a minimum of 10 inches in diameter is suggested. They should not need staking or a tomato cage, but support can be used if necessary. These plants have good disease resistance and with proper care should provide fruit throughout the season. Scout for tomato pests and treat the plants if necessary.
This is a container tomato that will prolifically produce cherry-sized tomatoes with great taste. The compact size works will in patio planters, window boxes and would be a fun hanging basket plant where it will cascade and allow for easy harvest. It should not need to be staked or caged to grow it successfully. This tomato will produce fruit for an extended period of time. If you are growing this plant in a container, a 12" diameter (3 gallon volume) is the minimum necessary size. The ideal size would be a 14" to 18" (5-7 gallon) container.
