A neighbor got a tomato plant as a gift. It had no id tag and the giver does not remember. It is about 1.5 ft tall, healthy and bearing fruit. Any thoughts as to what the name of this plant is? See the enclosed pictures:

click on the picture and hopefully you will see a more detailed photo.

Any thoughts are appreciated. Considering its size, shape and cluster of tomatoes, I am assuming it is a mini-determinate cherry tomato plant.

It does look nice, but it's awfully small and not branched. If I got that plant I'd pot it into a much larger, deeper pot right away. Put it in the sun and water and fertilize like crazy, see what happens.

If it is a mini determinate, it may put on a few more fruits or this may be all you get. If it's just a bit stunted from being in too small a pot, it will take off.
