A cherry tomato is a rounded, small fruited tomato thought to be an intermediate genetic admixture between wild currant-type tomatoes and domesticated garden tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes range in size from a thumb-tip up to the size of a golf ball, and can range from being spherical to slightly oblong in shape. (Wikipedia)
Tomatoes, like many other vegetables perform well in containers. It is, however, necessary to grow the plants in the right-sized pot and filled the right kind of growing medium, preferably organic soil. When the best conditions are met, tomatoes will produce excellent yields when grown in containers.
Typically, we suggest that each cherry tomato plant be grown in a pot that holds a minimum volume of 3 gallons.
