"these extremely compact, determinate plants tend to creep rather than grow tall and would be perfect in a hanging basket or patio container. "
2016: growing in HH; definitely was NOT "extremely compact" for me, growing to at least 6' tall inside the hoop house. Very productive and early (started to ripen in July), but the tomatoes tended to have hard yellow shoulders. Tomatoes were about the size of a golf ball.

" dwarf, compact, determinate plants that were listed in the McFayden Seed Catalog as a "self-pruning," and needing no staking. Plants produce huge amounts of 2-3", red, round tomatoes that have exceptional, rich, complex and slightly acidic flavors. This is a great canning and salad tomato. Produces well in cooler damp weather, greenhouse or containers."
Grew in 2015 inside hoophouse; produced well but had hard spots near shoulders, not the best flavor.
