The micro dwarf tomatoes are amazing in how many tomatoes are produced on such a small plant. The Aztek variety produces yellow, juicy tomatoes that are about the size of a quarter. They have a good tomato flavor, and ours continued to produce well for a longer-than expected period of time. A great plant that is suitable for a small container.
