Hi, I’ve got a tall order for you, per se…I’m looking for seeds for a medium sized tomato (or anything ~6 ounce or >) that stays relatively small (less than 3 feet so it will do well in a container), but is INdeterminate. Any suggestions as to a specific cultivar or will I have to stick with a determinate tomato to get a short-in-stature medium sized tomato? Thanks for your help! ~J.
Thank you for the email regarding your tomatoes. I’m trying to think of anything that may defy the parameters here and am not coming up with much. For a tomato to be determinate, it has a plant size that generally grows to about 3-4 feet at most. Indeterminates grow well beyond that and would keep growing if they were not killed off by the changing of the season and other environmental conditions. I think your best bet would be to go with a Patio or regular determinate variety of tomato.
