    A staple in my garden every year. Good in pots & in ground, gives excellent yields, especially considering the plant only gets to 2ft. Unique foliage too. I average about 5lbs/plant.

Hey Kelly, I’m growing these too! You are so right, unique looking leaves… the whole plant is beautiful. Got mine in a pot on the patio.

They definitely seem like they’d be a great pot tomato – the Sophie’s Choice I’m growing too would also be an excellent pot tomato. Good notes for next year!
