The Q&A Archives: Tomatoes

Question: I planted about 5 types of tomatoes last season in large pots in a sun-lit area. The reason I use pots is because I rent and I do not want to dig up the yard. Which types of tomatoes do you suggest for this type of growing? What other types of vegetables can grow well in pots? Thank you so much!!!

Answer: Tomatoes that grow well in containers include Patio VF, Pixie, Small Fry VFN, Yellow Pear, Sweet 100, Tumbling Tom, Container Choice, Rutgers, Tiny Tim, Husky Red, Husky Gold, Yellow Canary, Whippersnapper, Basket Pak, Red Cherry, Gardener's Delight, and Sundrop. Most any vegetable will adapt to growing in containers with the exception of melons and winter squash. They need too much room. Good luck with your veggie garden!
