2-3 ft. semi-determinate. Very easy to grow in a pot. Requires occasional pruning to promote fruiting. Bring indoors in the winter and set under a grow light. Does not self-pollinate. Use a paintbrush to pollinate flowers when indoors. Bring outdoors after all danger of frost.

Larger than a cherry tomatoe but does not have the best taste. Does well in pots and is a very popular tomatoe plant for balconies and patios, thus the name"Patio Tomatoe." If you have a garden I would grow some other tomatoe.
