Tomatoes - Container

Varieties that work well in containers have a strong central stem or are naturally compact plants.  Still, they like a roomy container.  With the exception of Whippersnapper, 5 gallons is the minimum size for these, and larger is better.  Choose a deep container over a shallow wide one, and be sure to feed your plants regularly.  "Weakly weekly" is a good rule of thumb--a weak feeding once a week. 

While many of our other varieties will do well in containers, these were chosen because of their compact nature, so are well suited for smaller spaces.


Arctic Rose SOLD OUT
Early/Mid Season 
Determinate

Good for containers
  
Expect to get a heavy crop of delicately pink, well-balanced, mild-flavored and firm fruit from this deceptively short-statured plant. We are possibly the first in the Bay area to offer this 2012 release from the Dwarf Tomato Project 


Orange King
Early
Determinate
Good for Containers

One of the very best early tomato varieties.  Large -- up to 3/4 pound -- slicer, tasty-sweet, and tolerant enough of temperature extremes that it is a favorite of a Michigan grower.


Tomato, Italian Red Cherry
Italian Red SOLD OUT
Early
Indeterminate
Good for Containers

A Bountiful Gardens recommendation (the seed source for this variety) because it is a robust plant that does well in containers and small gardens, yet produces big-flavored fruit.

Whippersnapper SOLD OUT


Early 
Determinate
Good for Containers

 This little cherry variety does well in hanging baskets, medium sized containers or in the ground.  Produces ripe fruit very early and is quite prolific.  All that versatility and the fruit has good, sweet flavor and texture too!  This variety seems to do well with less sun than other tomatoes.
