Patio hybrid is excellent for containers and small gardens, bearing tasty 3 to 4 oz tomatoes on strong, compact plants that grow only 2 feet tall. The stout stems generally do not need much staking at first, but it won't hurt to have stake or small cage to keep them upright in wind and rain, especially when loaded with fruit. This little plant is surprisingly productive. In our Alabama test garden, where growing conditions are very good, it yields 50 or more tomatoes per plant over an 8-week harvest period. Perfect for containers.
Patio is resistant to fusarium wilt (F), alternaria stem canker (ASC), and gray leaf spot (St). Widely adapted throughout the US.
