The plants are growing well in containers. There are lots of flowers and some tiny tomatoes are developing. I tasted a tomato recently and it was tasty and sweet. I have about 4 that I can eat at present. It is too early to report on the crop but I hope to have a few more edible tomatoes given that the growing conditions are not ideal.

Incredibly prolific tiny berry tomatoes. Stems needed tying up to prevent flopping. Immaculate fruits, very sweet. Picking them was quite time consuming so tended to snip off whole bunches at a time. Made beautiful passata. Will probably go back to Gardeners Delight next year but these would be great for families with young children (mine's 21 and a bit past that stage).
