Tumbling Tom Red Cherry Tomato
Trade flowering hanging baskets for pretty-as-a-picture trailing tomatoes. Tumbling Tom Red plants cascade from hanging baskets, tall containers, or window boxes, and when they’re loaded with sparkling red fruit, the effect is striking. Anticipate a harvest of up to four pounds of tomatoes per plant, with new fruit ripening throughout the summer.
These plants have a trailing growth habit, so they don’t need staking. Tuck one to two into a tall pot or large hanging basket. Resistant to fusarium wilt, verticillium wilt, and nematodes.
