Cherokee Purple Tomato

This is one plant, which I believe is the most suitable one for container garden. One can also select Cherry tomato plant or other heirloom tomatoes.

I got this plant in the form of seedling from the farmers’ market and I remember the farmer’s exact words for planting it in a bigger container. He told me to trim bottom half branches of the seedling and plant half of its stem in the potting soil in a bigger container. In this way he said it will grow upright and will have a stronger growth. His advice favored the growth of the plant. Today this tomato plant is doing great. All the harvested tomatoes are huge and really juicy. For all my plants, I have used Scotts Miracle-Gro potting soil and also purchased a bigger container from Lowe’s.
