Best Tom types for Hanging Baskets?
Any recommendations for a compact but productive, tasty, cherry type for this year?



Tumbling Tom seems to be very popular. I don't grow them, but everybody who does is very pleased. I think you will be too.

Thanks BG, I particularly like the idea of the yellow type

Balcony was thrilled with the ones he grew last year - sorry can't remember what they were - wait a bit, I think they were Red Robin.- He did send me a couple of young ones and they were really prolific, but they were red ones...)

I don't care what color they are so long as they taste good. I will say my eye sight improves dramatically when tomato season rolls around. It's because of the high concentration of lycopene & vitamin A which are more abundant in red tomatoes.

5 Feb, 2019 that really a noticeable improvement in your eyesight? If it is, I will start eating more tomatoes!
