The Q&A Archives: Seeds for Patio Tomatos

Question: I was looking in your on-line catalogue for Patio Tomato seeds and didn't see any. I'm a science teacher in NYC and I would like to grow tomatoes that can be planted in a bucket or container. Ideally I'd like to give the kids the plants so they can place them on their fire escapes.<br><br><br><br>Do you you sell Patio Tomatos?<br><br><br><br>Mike Mendick

Answer: A patio-type tomato is available through Burpee's catalog (not on-line however). It's called 'Tumbler'. It only gets 1-2 feet tall and produces 1 inch diameter red fruits. Call Burpee at 1-800-888-1447 to order this variety!
